But the thing is that 64 bit is backwards compatible. So it'll work with 32 bit programs, and then when more 64 bit programs come out, you've already got it.
Processors, yes. Programs...not so much. Particularly drivers.

Most 64 bit drivers are REALLY unstable. They barely work, because no one really suspected the 64-bit switch so soon. I'm going to advise you, once again, stick with 32 bit, particularly if you game. The only true 64-bit game out there is Farcry. That's it.

If you can wait a year, then make the switch. Now, it's just not advised.
