Is there a specific reason for using a 32bit OS rather than a 64bit version?

Safety. Before going inside the computer or handling parts. Remember to unplug the PC, take anti static measure by briefly touching an unpainted part of the PC case.

By the way, the OS I'm waiting for is the 64-bit version of Windows Home Premium. After the comments here, I reconsidered and returned the 32-bit version.

Good choice for the OS. As you did go 64bit, did you get 8GB of RAM to go with it?
Some tips you may consider using. Read through first. Update drivers only from the manufacturers web sites, especially graphics. Make sure windows firewall is active. Update your OS and drivers before installing other programs.
After installing the OS and drivers, create a folder in My Docs, (Backup Images) take a backup image of the C drive and save. , Create a rescue disk.
I create a manual restore point before every alteration, takes time but well worth it in case of problems.
Perform any necessary BIOS, Driver and OS updates. If the system is stable, Create a second Image and save.
Install you programs, if system is stable, create you third image. You now have choices to restore your system.
You can now restore any Data you saved. Make sure it goes where you want it to go.

How are things going? Did you finish the build?
An update would be welcome.

For info, I installed (in order):
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Microsoft Security Essentials (got a clean scan)
Updates to Windows and Internet Explorer
Microsoft Office 2003
Macrium Reflect backup software (made backup medium and did an image backup)
Spesoft free CD ripping software
I was really pleased with the ease of installing Windows 7. Getting drivers for a couple clean installs of Windows XP in the last month was hard. With Windows 7 it was a breeze.

This could be a hardware of software issue and should be investigated.
(I keep getting the blue screen)
1. Overheating will cause your PC to slow down and possible crash. use your Mobo health utility to monitor your temps and post a screen shot.
2. Your HDD may be faulty. Select the appropriate diagnostics tool from this page, download, follow instruction, let us know the result.
Will answer your other questions after performing the above.
You did not mention updating the BIOS or Mobo drivers.
Why have you 3 browsers? If they are all loading at windows start-up, they will slow down the computer.
