64-bit as a 32-bit OS cannot see or utilize any more than 3.75GB of Ram.

 

Tip

Please avoid adding multiple posts while waiting for us to reply to your last post, edit your last post to include anything that you wish to add, this will ensure nothing gets overlooked which can sometimes happen if a thread has more than one page.

Windows 10 is better than Windows 8/8.1 and is as user friendly as Windows 7 so would be my suggestion for the OS, you should also keep in mind that mainstream support for Windows 7 has ended and extended support will cease on 14 January 2020.

 

He has a point though. Eco-Friendly as can be, but other machines might not like it at all. All got to do with the specs. I'm surprised my 8yr computer can even handle it.

Whatever flavour of windows you buy,  7, 8.0, 8.1 or 10 it needs to be a 64-bit version as on this page, otherwise you will not be able to use all your RAM.

Albeit if you only have 2gb of ram it's x86, x64 for 4gb

Input from any member is more than welcome, but please read a topic from the beginning.

 

From the OPs spec, G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory.   So a 64bit version of Windows is required in this instance to use the installed 8GB of RAM.
