Upgrading to 64bit version

I recently bought a laptop with 8 GB of Ram yet it came with the Windows 7 32bit version. I plan to install the 64 bit version yet since I have a SS want to know what its the best way to do this. Should I delete everything from my SSD first? If so how do I do this? Thanks in advance.

You will need to backup any data you want saved and do a clean install, as you cannot upgrade from 32- to 64-bit. You don't need to delete the SSD. The install will do this for you.
