I understood what you meant yes the "upgrade" from 32bit to 64bit will increase the amount of memory your O/S can access and if you have a multi-core processor it should run better as well. Since I've "upgraded" I've noticed even my internet runs faster I've been very pleased with the result. Just be sure you software programs you need to use support the 64bit O/S and you have 64 bit drivers for you printer and your other devices as well before you upgrade. Many manufacturers don't offer 64bit drivers for older models, but want you to buy the new versions instead. Going from 4GB to 8GB should give you a good performance to cost upgrade going to 16GB not so much.
