Upgrading to x64 from x86: Doable?

Last response: in Windows Vista

Not sure if this has came up before, I did a quick search and found nothing: I have a computer pre-loaded with Vista 32-bit (x86) for about a year now, and I'm thinking of upgrading it to x64; pretty sure all the hardware drivers are 64-bit capable (or comes with a 64 version) here. Problem is, I have a crapload of settings on the applications on this machine which will take days to go through (and still miss some, and be annoyed to no end when they resurface), I don't feel like doing it.

So, is there a way I can upgrade to x64 without a clean install? Anyone did it before? I don't mind reinstalling drivers and messing with rebooting and crap, anything that will leave my settings intact.

Best solution
