    for this u need to understand about binary numbers.....and differnt ways of representaion.....

    it will be a long tutorial.....if i write evry details so in short....

    bit stands for “binary digit.”

    It is basically how a compu stores and makes ref 2 data, memory, etc. A bit can have a value of 1 or 0, that’s it. So binary code is streams of 1’s and 0’s, such as this random sequence 100100100111. These bits are also how your processor does calculations.


    By using 32 bits your processor can represent numbers from 0 to 4,294,967,295 while a 64-bit machine can represent numbers from 0 to 18,446,744,073,709,551,615. Obviously this means your computer can do math with larger numbers, and be more efficient with smaller numbers.

    i think u now understand the basic differnce between ....

    for more luk at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64_bit ....


    also

    vista will run with ease on ur system....

    well about 32 bit and 64 bit..

    well its just that 64 bit can process more and are more gamers friendly..

    and are technically not fully supported as of now..
    you will face problem in finding softwares for running on that processor..

    other wise future is 64 bit for sure , but wait for 2-3 years...
