You will need to find out if your motherboard supports a 64-bit CPU. You will not gain much when it comes to normal computer usage by upgrading to a 64-bit operating system.

Basically it refers to the size of the data packet that the CPU can handle.

In 32 bit (X86) systems, the processor handles data in chunks of 4 Bytes (32 bits) at a time. Each instruction set or chunk of data can have no more than 32 characters. This also limits the number of memory addresses etc.

With a 64 bit processor, each chunk of data is 64 characters. This allows for a significantly larger number of memory addresses, faster processing and transfer of data (almost twice as much data per CPU cycle)

Now a 64 bit processor can handle 32 bit data, but not the other way around.
