    32 bit can only see 4GB Max. You'd need to install 64bit version.

    And the 1GB difference to the 4GB is probably the address space for your graphics. You absolutely need a 64bit system.

    ... so if you upgraded from a 32 bit OS, that means a clean install of the 64 bit OS, and reinstalling everything.

    You might then find some old hardware and driver may not work, or you need a 64 bit version of a program in place of a 32 bit. But 32 bit progs will almost certainly still work.. just don't be tempted to go for a 64 bit browser in general yet.

    That means you will need all the relevant licenses for commercial programs you install.

    Are you recommending he stay on the 32bit version ??

    No, merely pointing out some of the potential issues which anyone faces in doing so..
