Default WinXP Pro 32 or Vista64 ...?

I have to purge the demons from #2 PC this weekend, it has been running XP Pro for years. #2 is the family's PC mostly internet use, light kids gaming and the Sims3.
I was thinking about upgrading the OS, because its been hit a few times with viruses and the usual spam but I really don't want to waste $$ on a new copy or more ram. I have Vista 64 or can continue running XP Pro(32bit) , #2 only has 2gb(DDR2 667) of RAM(C2D 6400{2.4ghz}, Radeon 4870{512gb}, 160gb WD Cav. HD) I'd really like to run the Vista64 but I'm thinking running a 64bit OS might bog this system down and it has a small HD on top of only 2gb....
What do you think... ?
