64 bit worth upgrading?

Hello friends,
I am using Opensuse10.3(32 bit) on AMD athlon64 3000+. Do you think I should go to Opensuse10.3(64 bit)? Considering that most of add on software are 32-bit, is it worth the effort? Please advise.

If you're going to reinstall anyway, move to 64-bit ... but, it's probably not worth upgrading for no particular reason.
