Keith I think you've fallen vistim to missconception & urban myth!
When Vista 64 or 7 installs it creates two program files, one for 32bit, the other for 64, your programs will install into the section which suits, thus so long as the drivers are Vista compatible they will work. USB is USB which means it should work on any usb port regardless of the OS. So if your drivers will work with 32 bit they'll work with windows 7.
I wouldn't reccomend anyone buys 7 Ultimate over professional, it only comes with a couple of extras - language support, and bit lockers HDD encryption system which hardly anyone uses.
Don't regret not buying an iMac, a friend has just bought one, for £1400 it comes with a 3.06 Ghz dual core processor, the model above that has an i5. The top processor now is the i7. The ATI Radeon graphics card, is a £70 job, which can't hold a candle to the 295GTX of Nvidia. Want to upgrade? Well you can't because it's all sealed in a nice looking case which costs a fortune. Nothing she produces software wise of it works on other hardware because everything is geared to windows, and software applications are rather limited compared to what's available for the PC.
Go for the Windows 7 OS there are a few driver issues, but sticking with a 32 bit system is like trying to stay in the past. The time will come when 32 bit simply isn't supported any longer, it would be wise to be ready sooner rather than later.
