I'm using Vista but it's a lot like w7, and these questions apply to
XP too, I think.

32 bit or 64 bit?

32 bit.

Max on a 32 bit system is ~4.3g (2^32). Able to use is ~3.3g.
Assuming that your computer can handle over 2g ram I would
definitely install 4g total, asap. Over that is a waste of money.
