When looking for Windows 10 I see...

Windows 10 x64... and Windows 10 x32/x64.

Does this matter?

No... One has both versions but you would install the X64 version.

Either way my recommendation is to always download the latest available version from Microsoft. You can create an USB installer with their tool and use the key that came with your installer to activate.

If you plan on having less than 4GB of RAM go with the x32 version, if not, then you want the x64 one.

You should get the x64 version anyway, Incase of upgrades.
