You have 4GB of RAM, so you should use Windows 7 64-bit.

The 32-bit version of Windows 7 can only access the first 3.5GB or so of RAM depending on your video memory aperture. It will work with 4GB or more of memory, but the RAM beyond ~3.5GB will be wasted.

32-bit is very soon end of life and you will only get to use about 3.5GB of your 4GB of ram, due to limitations
