The CD I have has both versions on it and if the CPU supports 64bit then you can install the 64bit Windows 7.
I have 4GB RAM on my system and that is plenty plus 2GB RAM is quite inexpensive and if your system supports it then it will be used.

With WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE it would greatly benefit from an additional 2GB RAM and 4GB would be better.
However a LENOVO G550 might need special RAM.

Try the Crucial System Scanner tool to find suitable RAM:

I do not know where you buy RAM from in your country but it is very inexpensive here. 8)
