Add Dword to Windows 2008 64 bit

Hi experts.  Need to add TcpMaxDataRetransmissions dword to make it 10.  When I add dword it says 32 bit or 64 bit.  Which one should I use?  Also, is it true that the default value is 5 and I should use 10 to make the connection more stable?  Thanks.

Doesn't seem this is needed in 2008

Important note: If OS is Windows Vista/2008, the number of TCP Keepalive attempts are hardcoded to 10 and could not be adjusted via the registry.

I don't know if the answer is correct.  Seems suspect, but have to close the question.
