generally IF you have more than 2gb of ram it will add some significant extra speed ONLY to 64bit applications
OS: Win 7 Ultimate x64 sp1, MoBo: Asus P5QD Turbo, CPU: Q6600 @ 3,0Ghz, RAM: Trancend 2x2gb 6-6-6-18 800 MHz, GPU: HD 4850 1gb.

Super simplified difference... If you have 4 gigs of ram or more, you will want 64bit. Due to the limits of 32bit processors, the system can't address more than 4 gigs of memory total in your system. This includes video card ram, sound card ram, the memory built into your mobo, etc etc. So if you have 4 gigs of ram and have a 512mb video card, the most ram you could use in 32bit windows would be 3.5gb.

More simple answer, if you have a 64 bit's CPU use a 64 bits OS (that can run 32 bits applications if needed)... the inverse does not applies.

Not really a simpler answer because it's not really necessary. Upgrading to a 64-bit OS just because you have a 64-bit CPU can often times be a waste since the majority of programs aren't 64-bit, and even those that are see little benefit unless they are ram hogs.

iakoboss: The video ram has to be addressed just like regular ram. A 32-bit processor only has address space up to 4GB, and that means ALL memory in every component of your PC. A 64-bit processor the RAM limit is much much MUUUUUUUCH larger (2^64 which is something like 60 MILLION gigabytes, though Windows 7 currently has a soft cap of 100GB).

Basically, think of it as a town... a 32bit "town" only has enough street addresses for about 4000 blocks. A 64-bit processor is more like a state. There is enough room there for hundreds or thousands of towns and each town can have 4000 blocks. Now currently PCs only carry enough "real estate" for a couple towns. Maybe not the best analogy... but that's a rough idea.
