EVGA 8600 Gt
3 gigs Kingston 6400 DDR2
2 DVD Burners /LG and song

Windows 7 will have 32-bit and 64-bit on the disk so it doesn't matter what you buy, and you can use either.
The majority of software should work in a 64-bit environment, the general rule of thumb says the older the software, the more likely it won't work.
