There are no disadvantages to going with 64-bit, unlike with Vista 64-bit, where there were problems with compatibility, those have largely been ironed out.

If you go with 32-bit, you won't be able to access all 4 GB of the memory on your system.

These days, there's no good reason to go with 32-bit unless you have some critical ancient program you run that only runs on a 32-bit OS.
