Whenever you change from 32 bit to 64 bit, you MUST do a clean install - all previous installed software will be deleted.

In your case, however, I would not bother...your system only has 1GB RAM, so installing 64 bit will offer no benefit at all. Keep the 32 bit installation as is and save yourself the trouble of reinstalling.
