If you use a PAE kernel, 32-bits should work fine (that's what I use).
If you don't use PAE, memory is more limited (IE a single process can
only address 2 GB of RAM at a time).  PAE has it's short-comings, but it
works well enough.  64-bit might be good for you too, but I find mainly
it just wastes my disk space.  It is required for more than 4 GB of RAM,
