Hello,

You should wait for your 64-bit disk if you want to use the 64-bit edition.

You cannot upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit.

If you install the 32-bit now, you'll have to back up your data and
do a clean install when the 64-bit arrives. I'd wait but if you have a
hassle-free backup method or don't have any data to be preserved
then go for it!

You'll have to do a fresh load, you can't upgrade 32 bit to 64, so it
depends on how much work you want to do.
