color depth only goes to 32 bit. There is no 64 bit.

If you're taking about the OS you have to gee a 64bit disk, wipe the harddrive, and install it.

Get a 64-bit version of the OS and install it. There is no upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit.

32 bit and 64 bit refer to instruction sets your processor can use, and to OS versions for Windows. You are right, you can check if you use 32 bit or 64 bit windows through computer properties window. As above poster stated, you can not upgrade from 32bit windows to 64 bit windows. You need to buy a copy of 64 bit windows, erase your hard drive, and do a clean install of 64 bit windows.

The advantage of 64 bit windows is you can have more ram, and more ram means a system that runs better usually.
