Because you have 4 gigs of ram, go for the 64-bit since it will be able to access all of the RAM. This gives you room to add more RAM if you want.

32-bit Windows cannot utilize all 4 gigs of memory. Therefore, anything beyond that is wasted and not used.

Yes I knew that, the reason I asked is because I have integrated video card so I dont really have access to 4GB. But anyway I think Ill install 64bit. Thanks!

There really isn't a downside to using 64-bit, and it will allow you to expand your memory if you need to in the future (memory upgrades are often the cheapest and most effective thing you can do for performance).
