Which to install 32 or 64 bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 5, 2012
I just got a new high power computer and want to confirm which to install of 12.04 - 32 or 64 bit?
Intel DZ77BH-55K motherboard
Intel i7 3770 Ivy Bridge CPU at 3.4 GHz
Radeon 7750 1 Gig 800 MHz display card
16 Gig memory
1T hard drive for Ubuntu only
I thought this might be a common question, but a search turned up nothing definitive.
I simply assumed that 64 bit would be the answer, but I see that 32 bit is recommended, and if I select 64 bit, it appears that I'm still only offered 32 bit even though 64 bit is selected - so WHERE can I get a for sure 64 bit version for normal desktop use?
Last, but not least, which is the preferred installation method for this machine?
64 bit vs 32 bit

I have a 2010 15" macbook pro, 2.4 ghz I5 processor and 8 gb ram. The system runs 64 bit os's. But 32 bit is recommended on the ubuntu download page. Why? I realize 32 bit will run on a 64 bit system, but it seems that a 64 bit system would appreciate a 64 bit ubuntu os. Any thoughts out there? Anybody download the 64 bit and either found no problems or found problems? Any recommendations/feedback? Final setup would be running ubuntu via parallels. Thoughts would be most appreciated.

After 11.10 was released, I wanted to download a copy but noticed that still 32 bit was recommended. Is there a specific reason not to install 64 bit Ubuntu on a 32 bit machine? In old forums they complained about insufficient software assistance. Does the problem persist?
Should I install 32 or 64 bit Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 20, 2011
I want to install Ubuntu 10.04 (I heard 10.10 doesn't work well with my network card) but I wanted to ask if I should install the 32 or 64 bit. My current machine runs 64-bit Windows 7.
Under the "Select a Release" page, I found the following regarding the 64-bit install:
"Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead."
My processor is: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU @ 2.10GHz 2.1o GHz
Do I install 32-bit since I have an Intel chip? Or the 64-bit because I have a Core duo?
Thank you in advance,

As most of you know, I went ahead and installed Ubuntu on my AMD dual core machine. Now the question arises: Should I install the 64 bit version and take advantage of all 4 gigs of RAM, or should I just cruise with the 32 bit version for a while? Inquiring minds want to know....

[SOLVED] Overwriting the Ubuntu 64 bit partition with installation of 32 bit version
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 11, 2011
Hello. I just installed Ubuntu 64 bit 11.04 on my new PC and I'm not very happy with it.
Found out that installing video drivers is a drag everytime a new kernel version comes around, and with the 32 bit version everything seems just easier. And I need Ubuntu to work with the development of intense graphic applications, which should be better to work on a 32 bit environment.
So here is my question: is it possible to overwrite the existing Ubuntu installed with another installation of it, now with 32-bit instead of 64? I don't want to keep using the 64 bit one, so I am just fine with deleting it.
Thanks for the attention, sorry for my horrible english.
