    Why is it that you think you need to do so?

    32-bit isn't more betterer than 24-bit and 32-bit colour displays don't exist.

    Like CatKiller said, 32Bit color dosen't exist. All modern Video cards give 24bit+8bit. That 8bit on the end is for opacity and dosen't actually define color, just how transparent or solid it is. So under linux, we list 24bit color as a technicality. While Windows dosen't care and says "32bit". So 24bit is correct for your settings.
