    I think I will just use Vista for gaming and a bit photoshop or photo editing stuffs?

    What is the big differences with 32 and 64 bit?

    The only difference is that a 64-bit machine supports more than 4Gb of addressable RAM .... which i don't think you're likely to hit on a VMware partition

    I can't speak to Parallels, but if you run any specific hardware that would require a 64-bit Windows driver, that's usually the problem. If a vendor doesn't make a 64-bit driver then you might be better off with 32-bit Windows.
