You cannot upgrade a 32bit to 64bit OS, although almost all product keys for Windows 7 are architecture-independent (they'll work for 32 and 64bit Windows 7 installs). If you buy a retail product, you'll actually get both the x86 and x64 DVDs in the same box.

True. But I can do a clean installation of the 64bit OS since my cpu is 64bit compatible.

Yes, but you might be best sticking to 32 bit because you have 2 GB of ram. if you had 3, I'd say 64 bit

Anything I can do to optimize performance? I just pretty much loaded the main stuff I had on my old OS and it still hardly uses 500MB ram I'm impressed.

Are their any hard drive tweaks etc that I should know about? I pretty much just re-overclocked my graphics card by a decent 25~30% performance increase now I can sit back and relax I guess.

Well, if your temps are good, then you should be set. Have you tried oc'ing the CPU yet?

Not as yet, I don't want to risk anything. If I remember correctly there was a way to increase hard drive performance on Vista is that available on Windows 7? I cannot remember correctly as it was so long ago.

I think if you are talking about superfetch, this is already enabled in Windows 7. I haven't seen any other "tweaks" myself.
