A 64 bit system is theoretically speeder in processing data than a 32 bit one.
But practically you can feel the difference if you use your PC for multimedia functions. I am using a 32 bit for your info.

with not very specific & heavy applications, 32/64 bit seems 2 b the same.

moreover for 64 bit more RAM is required, at least 4gb..so is costly

Its not true that more RAM is required for 64 bit. The thing is it can support upto 128 GB of RAM whereas 32bit can only support upto 4 GB of RAM.

There is a bit od performance difference on 64 bit compared to 32 bit, but you wont feel it until you measure the timings in miliseconds as done by testers or you use a extensive application like Photoshop or any video editor.

Again you are wrong. There is no minimum requirement of RAM on 64 bit. I have run Windows XP 64 bit on 256 MB ram , Vista 64 on 512 MB Ram and Windows 7 64 on 1 GB RAM. And they run better than the 32 bit versions on same amount of RAM.

I second Avinash's thought. You won't need a 4 gigs RAM for 64 bit system.
Mind that the minimum requirement of windows 7 64 bit is 2GB of RAM. For linux distros its even much smaller.
