    As the MSI 760GM-P23 FX has a 64 bit CPU, use x64 Windows 8.

    To get the full use of 4GB of RAM, you need the 64bit version of the OS. With the 32bit version, you'll get about 3.5GB of RAM and the rest will be used by the system (BIOS, video, etc...). 64bit really becomes a requirement when you go beyond 4GB of RAM.
