    Yes it will be quite slow. A consequence of larger data types is that they have a larger memory footprint. Even the 32 bit versions of Windows Vista had no business ever being installed on a system with only 1GB of memory.
  3. plus it won't maximize the efficiency of the OS's architecture given that 64 bit OS's will work better if you have a RAM of 4gb or more
