    And if you are indeed going to dual boot and not sure about partition plan, I'd suggest to post your question in a new thread with output of -
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    from ubuntu live session.
    Varun
    Help others by marking threads as [SOLVED], if they are. (See how)

    I don't want to go through the hassle of replacing the 32bit version with the 64bit version if there are no benefits.
    Absolutely there are benefits; why not use your hardware to its full potential? CPU-intensive tasks such as video encoding will be noticeably faster; for day-to-day tasks like web browsing and email you may not notice much difference.
