I use TGA. Many use PNG. I often use JPG just for the preliminary and tests.

The 32 is only of use if you are using the Alpha.

If you are not using solid colors a first generation jpg is pretty much artifact free, so it is a viable solution if you are low on space. If you need higher quality or alpha channel then PNGs have loss-less compression so I see no reason to use TGAs.
