I hve a fairly new Macbook Pro. Mid 2012 Version just before the new display came out. My question is, which version of Windows 7 should I use? I've noticed that I can purchase either the 32Bit or 64Bit version, but I am not sure and don't want to load something that might be bigger than I need. I'll only be using Windows to run The Sims 3. This means over 9 expansion packs+ and their EA store content.


Here is what I am running on my mac:


Model Name:          MacBook Pro

  Model Identifier:          MacBookPro9,2

  Processor Name:          Intel Core i5

  Processor Speed:          2.5 GHz

  Number of Processors:          1

  Total Number of Cores:          2

  L2 Cache (per Core):          256 KB

  L3 Cache:          3 MB

  Memory:          4 GB

  Boot ROM Version:          MBP91.00D3.B08

  SMC Version (system):          2.2f38

  Serial Number (system):          C1MHN1TNDTY3

  Hardware UUID:          8CCE66F6-C4B6-5EDB-9CE7-FFB43E25F89D

  Sudden Motion Sensor:

  State:          Enabled


As you can tell this isn't a higher end Macbook Pro, as it was a gift, but I am unable to play the game without it crashing since they do not have an updated patch for Mac users - and it is very unlikely that they will even care to update the patch. This seems to be the only guarenteed fix. I appreciate any help I can get, I just need responses soon so I can take advantage of the low prices for Windows 7 before they run out.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
