64-bit. Uses all your RAM.

With 32-bit the amount of RAM you can use varies, depending on what hardware you have installed, but can range from as little as 2GB to as much as 3.5GB. It's usually around 3.1GB.

Since you have 4GB i would recommend you choose 64-bit in order to make use of all your RAM and any RAM you may add in the future.

I would use the 64 bit OS as you have enough ram to do so. Still I have a question though .... can a pc not access the extra ram not used in a 32 bit OS for video memory if need be ?
