Using 64 bits over 32 bits. Why?

I've recently reinstalled my desktop PC, and switched from 32-bits Arch to 64-bits Arch. I've not had many problems (yet), except for a few minor ones, but I am starting to wonder what the advantage of using a 64 bits installation over a 32 bits is?
Should I stick with 64 bits and enjoy my new desktop installation, or reinstall the 32 bits version again?

First, you should search the forums for the multitude of other threads on this topic. Then maybe you'd like to google for a wider perspective. Once you've done that, if you have any specific question you're welcome to open another thread.
