Many 64 bit drivers are notorious for being very buggy which is why
most people don't use 64 bit anything unless they absolutely have to.
Its simply too early. If you must be on the cutting edge you must
accept things are less stable. Developers will work on and optimize 32
bit drivers first. Sorry, but that's just how it is.
You're also mixing apples and oranges. When you're talking about a
video or still images the number of bits means the file's color depth.
When you are talking 32 bit verse 64 bits in a operating system that
refers to how big a gulp of code the CPU can handle at one time. Two
totally different animals.
