Default Vista question

So ive got a 64 bit processor (e6600) but im running windows 32bit Home edition. Am i wasting the power of the CPU? Will upgrading to vista be a lot faster? I know a beta version is out - should i get that? Or are there problems with it? Should i just wait till Feb and buy it? - Or perhaps in Feb XP Pro 64 bit as the price may drop a fair bit? ?

Any advice would be great.
Cheers

I would wait for vista, if ya gonna use it. Ive tried XP64 , and the driver support was crap, im guessing the vista 64 bit will be the same, especially if you have some older components

I was thinking more about maybe printers and scanners etc, but if ya got new ones aswell, ya will probably be fine, unless its some obscure brand.
