Windows 7

I am preparing to upgrade some workstations in our network to Windows 7.   However, some are older machines and running the Windows 7 Upgrade advisor, it says it will work with 32 bit but not enough RAM for 64 bit.  

Adivse on a good plan of action.   Management won't authorize new computers.   I can maybe add another GB RAM (cost???)   or I can run a mix blend of 32 bit and 64 bit.

Any pros and cons to the mixed blend?

Another question....I have done the compatability scan for Windows 7 and the minimum requirement says 2GB RAM.   Well, a couple of our machines do have 2GB RAM and no more room for more.  

Will this be a problem?

You need to tell to manager he must invest few hundreds bucks and buy new computers.
