Hi,
I am building my own computer and wondered if it is better to get the windows 7 home edition or the windows 7 64 bit. I noticed the 64 bit is £40 cheaper and am not sure about the reason for this. Which one should I get?

More about : bit home premium

Your question doesn't quite make sense. Each Windows 7 version comes in both 32bit and 64bit flavours, thus there is a Home Premium 32bit and 64bit.

I assume you are looking at Home Premium retail versus 64bit OEM. OEM is cheaper but can only be used on one PC since the license is tied to the hardware.

No one is talking about upgrade version here, he said OEM version not the upgrade version.

Home Premium x64. Make sure you have a 64 bit processor.

All processors are 64bit capable these days, so no problem unless it's a fairly old PC.
