    I have both a 32 and 64 bit copy of windows 7 ultimate. I will be doing a bootcamp install, but which version should I do? 2010 i7 2.93 iMac with 12g ram and 1g video. I'll mainly be using a couple of programs from work and a game or two.... Thanks

    Definitely 64-bit, otherwise you won't be able to utilize more than 4GB of your RAM.

    Thanks. Both are legal with keys.

    Will some programs have difficulty running on the 64 bit level?

    Since the introduction of Windows Vista, 64-bit has gotten a lot more popular due to 32-bit version's limitations. Windows 7 took this one step further. As long as you aren't running software that is very outdated, you shouldn't have any issues.
