Slim PC cases, especially custom PC vendor cases, do not make good upgrades. If you are going to upgrade, also get a new full size case. The extra cost for a new case will be minimal.

4GB is relatively small. If you want to use a 64bit OS you want more than 4GB of RAM or you can't take advantage of a 64 bit OS (and a 64 bit OS uses more of the memory than a 32 bit so you will have less for programs).

I like the case but they arent so expensive so buying a nother one wont be a problem.
How much ram would i need to run a 64 bit version ?

I don't know how much RAM, but the main reason for having a 64 bit OS is that it will address more than 4GB of RAM.

That`s not really an upgrade.

You want at least 8 GB ram with the ability to upgrade to 16 someday.
