    64 bit windows works faster. Also 32 bit OS can't use RAM more than 4 GB. You can experience improved speed in system when you use 64 bit application.

    In very simple terms it basically means that information is travelling around your PC / server over a 64 lane highway rather than a 32 lane highway. It also means your PC / server can access more physical RAM (memory)

    With an increase in the availability of 64-bit processors and larger capacities of RAM, Microsoft and Apple both have begun to develop and release upgraded versions of their operating systems that are designed to take full advantage of the new technology. In the case of Microsoft Windows, the basic versions of the operating systems put software limitations on the amount of RAM that can be used by applications, but even in the ultimate and professional version of the operating system, 4 GB is the maximum usable memory the 32-bit version can handle. While a 64-bit operating system can increase the capabilities of a processor drastically, the real jump in power comes from software designed with this architecture in mind.

    The term 32-bit and 64- bit refers to a computer processor (CPU), handles information. 64-bit operating system can handle large amount of memory more efficiently than 32-bit operating system and it can be more responsive when running several programs at the same time.

    There are several differences between 32-bit and 64-bit, few of them are discussed below:-
    1) In 32-bit Windows, you can use a maximum of 4GB RAM. While in 64-bit Windows you can use 4GB RAM and for future use you can also upgrade your RAM to 8 or 16 GB.
    2) You get better security with 64-bit Windows than 32-bit Windows.
    3) 64-bit supports graphics applications like Photoshop, video editing, games, CAD, etc.

    The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system.f you go to java download page, it list down various installation packages mentioning 32-bit packages or 64-bit packages for various platforms such as Linux or windows.

    Now days if you are buying any new system you will only get 64bit operating system. 64bit is more compatible with graphics and software's.

    Only difference is that 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more than a 32-bit version.

    With 32-bit Windows, you can use a maximum of 4GB RAM. 64-bit Windows 7 runs very fast with 4GB and you can upgrade your RAM to 8 or 16 GB later.
