To do what?

Currently Microsoft Office comes in 32 & 64 Bit Versions as well as several Web Browsers like Firefox as a 32 Bit and Water Fox is a Unofficial 64 Bit Fork of Monzilla Firefox.

Though Pale Moon is probably a better 64 Bit Browser

However depending on what it is you want to do here you probably will not notice much difference between the Different Software Applications as the main difference is that the OS can use more hardware. Things like the ability to use more than somewhere around 3.25 GIG of RAM which is what any 32 Bit OS is restricted to and bigger files is the main difference. The 32 Bit Programs running on a 64 Bit OS do not perform significantly better. Just look at the 32 & 64 Bit Versions of IE which is already installed on your system for proof of that.

If however you need to do any CAD or Large Graphic work you will notice a significant improvement in Opening speed of 64 Bit Programs.

Just remember to remove the space from between the Domain Name and the .org or whatever to get a working URL.
