You can install 64-bit Linux today, I don't know about Windows.

None of the Windows people on here have given you a straight answer, so maybe it isn't available yet.

Definitely go for the 64-bit. Microsoft will catch up to you eventually, and in the meantime the AMD processors still support the 32-bit instruction set.
