Windows 7: Windows 7 v/s Windows XP Games Support

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Windows 7 v/s Windows XP Games Support

Hey Guys
This is my system info:
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_rtm.101119-1850)
System Manufacturer: INTEL
System Model: DG31PR
BIOS: BIOS Date: 10/22/08 19:07:50 Ver: 08.00.10
Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E7400 @ 2.80GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
Memory: 4096MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
DX Setup Parameters: Not found

I was using Windows XP Service Pack 3 earlier[32-bit]... My problem is that I have updated all the drivers including Graphic Card but still Games are not running as smoothly as they used to run on XP.. Is it true that windows 7 32-bit is more compatible than 64-bit??

My graphic card details are:
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT
Display Memory: 2796 MB
Dedicated Memory: 1024 MB
Shared Memory: 1790 MB

Please help guys because the main reason I switched to Win7 was because of DirectX support..
