    As Macs can support 64 bit Windows since late 2006, you can use the 64 bit version of Windows.

    I think you mean 32bits and 64bit respectively.

    If you have more then 4gig or plan on having more then 4gb of ram, then the 64bit makes sense. If you have under 4gb of ram then you can go with 32bit.

    I'd say most people go with the 64bit as it can access more ram.
