There is a long answer to your question that I'll let someone else provide but if your system has over 4GB of RAM then go with 64 bit. Generally speaking, 32 bit systems do not take advantage of ram over 4GB.

... between 32/64, 32 and 64 Bits ...

Full retail versions of Windows include options to install in 32-bit or 64-bit operating systems.
The full retail versions are transferable to a new system if/when you decide to upgrade the mobo.
The OEM versions are sold either as 32-bit operating systems or 64-bit operating systems not both.
