The first thing I'd like to know, since you said it works fine, is there any need to switch the environment (from x86 to x64) ?
Forget about upgrade adviser, it's crap, it even says 512 MB is enough to run "buggy" Windows Vista, but I know even having 1 GB it lags a lot. Though, Win7 is bit optimized but I'd suggest stick to 32-bit environment, which app require you 64-bit OS anyway?
As for drivers, those should be AIO (all-in-one) compatible drivers, don't worry about that, they'll work on all HPET supported Kernels (including upcoming Windows 8).
To be more specific, if you look at the download location even those are the same for both environments (x86 and x64).
To cut the story short, stick to x86 (32-bit) operating system unless you upgrade your RAM to 4GB or more.

Are you trying to say that my notebook will lag on x64 ?
Bro if u wana use softwares that only supports x64 and not x86 then u need not ask the question whether u should upgrade or not, cuz in that case u dont have a choice.
Although x64 does slow down ur system if u have 2gb ram..
Juste. Yeah, I was trying to say that it would lag. But then again I also understand that there's no other choice left for you at the moment, even if you play some HQ videos you'll see the difference clearly.
Also, when I said Vista I was indicating that how bad upgrade adviser works actually.
4 > 1. YEAH ! MATH BITCH !
It will work fine without any issues, I've been using Windows 7 for more than a year now, ever since it was released that is, and x64 too on top of that...
My laptop specs are:
Intel Dual Core T2390 @1.86GHz 1.87GHz
2GB RAM DDR2
No dedicated GPU...
No software problems either, because nearly all 32bit softwares will work, only those that require separate 64bit structure software installation package (like MS OFFICE, ADOBE, SQL SERVER etc) will ask for 64bit installation package of that particular software, which can easily be found via torrents.
Working fine without any issues.

The same question I asked a while ago
I am also running win7 64bit on my dell n5010 from 5 months, never had any issues. You can go for it with your eyes closed! And do remember, these are the most resource hungry programs, and I fear that it might do something bad for your lappy when you comes to the phase of rendering! Also notice the heat level your laptop is generating while rendering! if it is more than usual then get a laptop cooler because high temperatures quickly drains the battery cells. Same thing happened to my dell n5010, within 15 months of purchase, I got the message that I need to replace my battery, it only gives 30minutes backup now!
umm so it seems i have to install x64 service pack 1 and it will not slow down my notebook as suggested by major aly and tech reaper
i am not worried about rendering because i am new to these software's first i have to learn them.

You can run 64bit Windows even if you have 2GB Ram, and it'll perform just fine.
But the softwares you mentioned, they are RAM eaters. 64bit itself takes a lot of RAM, and it'll eat atleast your 1GB out of 2GB. So 1GB Left for the softwares you mentioned ... hence the result will not be satisfactory. And that would be the only drawback.
^ Exactly, it's not just about running it, running and using is kinda different thing. Even some DVD players eat a lot memory while playing a HQ video. Anyway, it's up to the person once again.
