64 bit = 32bit?

Is there some kind of error or glitch here? I downloaded the 64bit (Which was 32bit) I thought I read somewhere that 64bit = 86bit..

his wei is high so it might be ok, but i always thought the rule of thumb is 2 gigs= x86 and 4 gigs= x64

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.
 
 

I was, some weks ago, browsing for a better(64Bit) computer, or another 2 gbs to add to my 4 year old 64bit laptop.
However, it is running better than any previous OS, 64 or 32bits with only 2gbs memory.
I am not a great game player, or graphics manipulator, so there is not a huge ram demand. I've put my wallet back in my pocket!
