You have no problem 32 bit color is the highest setting.
Has nothing to do with your system being a 64bit os.

Your OS is 64-bit - making full use of the internal CPU execution and memory access structure, which determine Windows' ability to run 64-bit code and access more than 4GB of memory.

Your videocard is displaying your desktop with a 32-bit depth per pixel, which is 24 bits of color information (16.7 million colors) plus 8 bits of alpha blending/transparency (which Windows Aero uses for its transparency and blending effects, among other things).

the display resolution of 32bit has nothing to do with the operating system 64bit :)

It also has nothing to do with resolution. It's the bit depth per pixel, defining how many possible colors each pixel can assume.
