The advantage of 64-bit would double the amount of data a CPU can process per clock. You would note a performance increase because a 64-bit CPU can handle more memory and larger files. Unfortunately, most benefits of a 64-bit CPU will go unnoticed without a 64-bit operating system and 64-bit software and drivers which are able to take advantage of 64-bit processor features. HOwever, for the average home computer user, 32-bits is more than adequate for now.
Will 32bit games run on a 64bit OS? Will my other software work as expected? I understand that if they are not written for 64bit I will see no performance increase, but will they work at all?
