Pretty much. 64bit doesn't mean it can process twice as much at once, it means it can address a considerably larger amount of data at once. Running a 32bit OS simply means you negate this benefit but unless you have more than 4GB of RAM I wouldn't be concerned.

Later it will be much more important.
