Hi I've read up heaps for my new build, and I only have one question - I'm getting an i7 920, and a SSDHD. Im just having trouble in deciding whether to get 3GB of RAM and get Windows 7 32bit or to get 6GB of RAM and Windows 7 64bit.

I know Im building a high end system so I should probably use the 64bit version, but in all honesty I'm not sure if there is really any point in having more than 3 GB of RAM... is there?

Please let me know what you think and why

The choice now is obvious, but 4GB with 64 Bit Win 7 is enough.
