Default Linux 64 Bit

What's would the difference be in running OpenSuse 64 bit opposed to the normal version? Is it faster? Would I run into more driver errors? What are the advantages/Disadvantages of running a 64 bit system?

The only big difference is that 64bit is made for 64bit processors, and 32bit for 32bit processors. You shouldn't have any problems with drivers. Is it faster?...Not exactly, 64bit processors are faster in that they can process more tasks a second, but that doesn't necessarily make it faster.
