Do you gain anything from running the 64 installation of Office 2010 on Win7 64bit? Or is it best just to run the 32 bit version of Office 2010?

64bit Office 2010 can utilise more virtual memory and physical memory that 64bit operating systems offer over 32bit systems, allowing users to work with larger data sets. For example, 64bit Excel can handle spreadsheets over 2GB in size.

See here for more details: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee681792.aspx

You have to bear in mind that 3rd party Office add-ins may only be available in a 32bit variety, so this may dictate which version of Office you deploy in your environment.

Hope that helps,
