No. 32 or 64 bit is the addressing scheme in the Operating System. Believe me, you have 1GB !

A 64-bit bus can transport twice the amount of data as a 32-bit bus, effectively doubling the amount of information that can be transported to and from the processor at one time.

The software that benefits from 64-bit computing the most are applications such as high-end games or programs that perform complicated mathematical calculations. Virtual machine performance is likely to benefit significantly.
