I have Windows 7 32-bit, what is the easiest/cheapest way to upgrade to 64-bit?

I purchased Windows 7 at a discounted rate through my school. I didn't realize this at the time, but because I got the 32-bit version I am not getting full usage of all my RAM (8 GB). It says that I only have 3.75 GB "usable". Obviously, I would like to get the most out of my CPU performance. What is the best/easiest/cheapest way to upgrade from 32-bit Windows 7 to 64-bit Windows 7? I already tried the Windows "Anytime Upgrade" and it will not let you switch between the two. Also, will I have to backup before I make the switch or will it keep all of my data? Thank you for your time.

Should I upgrade to After Effects CS4?

I am running After Effects version 7.0.1 on my Intel iMac 2.8GHz with 4GB of RAM running Snow Leopard (10.6). It is slow. Slow to render, slow to play, slow everything. Most likely because it's using Rosetta to translate. I'm considering updating to After Effects CS4 but I have several questions. Is After Effects CS4 64-bit? Given my machine, will I be able to utilize OpenGL? My iMac is version 7,1. Will I see a noticeable speed bump? Will I become an effects guru? Thanks.
