I think you can have 3Gb of ram with Win XP. That's because it's the 32 bit system. The benefit of 64 bit system is obviously more ram and some audio and plugin processings can be done much better than on 32 bit system. If you go for 64 bit you need to make sure that drivers are available for your hardware.

Depending on your system, XP 32-bit can take advantage of maximum 4 GB RAM.
No matter what you do or what your system says, it cannot use more than this.
And usually no more than 3,2 - 3,7 GB RAM.

64-bit OS however, have a higher limit.

I agree with Emir, so if you go for Vista you HAVE TO CHECK that all drivers are available for your hardware! smile.gif
I would go for XP as that is without a doubt the most stabile OS for music production as of now!

Let me just add one more thing, 64bit architecture is something new, and as with all new technologies it must be developed through a number of years to really become stable and practical. For now it is good and lots of people can use it, but it is not for everyone. 32bit platform is something that is on the market for 15 years now and it is mature technology that is quite stable. To get the best out of 64bit platform it is best to wait for some time.
Of course, if you are power user and like to try new things, Vista could be a nice experience. smile.gif

With my 32bit vs 64bit dilemma it was mostly about Windows XP as it has both versions available. I won't go for Vista and Windows 7 is not an option and I don't think drivers are available for all the hardware I use.
