FWIW, I recommend the one for your favourite desktop (provided it is there) 
and, if you want only one, then the i386.  64 bit processors can use 32 bit.  
The reverse is not true.

Mind you, it is a brave Windows fugitive who goes straight to Debian!  I 
stared with one that hand-held a bit more.

Again, for what it is worth, I keep a little pile of different Live CDs.  I 
find that it is horses for courses.
