    some opinions

    I have windows 8.1 installed on my system.It runs pretty well,but I think I got a virsu or something,and now is a little bit laggy and I want to re-install the OS.

    Here's my specs:
    AMD Athlon 64x2 dual core 4400+
    ATI Radeon HD 2400
    160 GB HDD
    2GB RAM DDR2

    I am running a 64 bit version.Should I keep the 64 bit edition,or install a 32 bit edition?I want to install windows 8.

    windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit

    Stay with Windows 8.1 64 bit for performance. The problem is with your RAM. 2GB is not sufficient and should be increased to whatever your computer can handle. Not knowing the model of your system I can not help you there.

    You should not even use 8, not with that GPU, better use 7, if possible.
    32-bit definitely, it uses less RAM, so it should run more smoother.
    Also use CleanMem Free it helps a bit on system with little RAM.
