Win 7 32bit and memboost

I believe this to be an apples and oranges question but here goes.
I'm running Win 7 32bit w/2Gb Corsair DDR2-800Mhz PC2-6400 and a 4Gb USB drive as memboost.

Before my video card changed the situation, I was getting ready to try Win 7 64bit w/2Gb G.skill (2x1Gb kit) DDR2-800Mhz PC2-6400 and the Corsair stick.

Which is the better electronicly? Mechanicly?

You lost me on this one PPM.
But if what you mean is will you gain any performance out of the flash drive & ReadyBoost? NO.
As a matter of a fact it will probably hurt it.

Not unless you have a super fast flash drive that's close to the speed of your ram...which is highly unlikely.

There it is agian-trying to do 3 things at the same time and I sure did a bad job at saying this one. Damn-I bairly understand it!

To simplify [and I was 85% sure of the answer before I posted that cra*!)

Is Win 7 32bit and 2GB of relay good mem and 4 Gb USB flash drive in the ballpark performance wise with Win 7 64bit and 4Gb of middle of the road memory alone? It's just one of those questions that hit my head as I'm flooding CraigsList with memory and any thing else around the house!

My prior post still applies.
It will hurt the performance not help it.

The average flashdrive aka thumbdrive doesn't have fast transfer speeds like your RAM does, so what you end up doing is slowing it down a bunch!
You are better off with 2 gigs of fast memory on a 64bit system than 4 gigs of slow memory.
