Im also using 64bit now and with no problems.
Makes sense to make the most of what memory you have.
You will have to do a clean install but thats simple enough :)

I just reinstalled all of my office machines with the 64bit Ultimate edition and my staff were saying that there is a slight difference in performance so hopefully that will make them work harder. lol
