Which Windows 7 Version (32 bit or 64 bit) should I install on a new MacBook Pro with 4 GB of RAM?

I have just bought a brand new MacBook Pro with 4 GB RAM, and was wondering which Windows 7 version 32 bit or 64 bit I should install with BootCamp, in order to do Visual Studio development?

"Visual Studio is a 32 bit application only, so if that is the major reason for installing windows, 64-bit will not give you any additional features, other than it will be able to handle all 4 GB of memory, whereas 32-bit will only give 3.2 GB or so.

See this question for details about general 32-bit vs 64 bit systems:
