I have no clue if this is possible, I have a laptop with arch installed on it which I used dd to copy the partition to a new desktop I built. The desktop has 8 gb of ram. So my question is, is it possible to change to Arch 64 without haveing to do a complete reinstall, or is there an easier way to get the same results?

I'd say that editing pacman's config to use the 64-bit repos and doing a full update would theoretically do the job, but it's too likely to fail. Maybe just preserve your /home partition, plus any other precious config files like your fstab, do a reinstall and put them back.
Lenovo Y450 + Arch x86_64 dual boot with Windows 7 + Openbox standalone + Arch default kernel + Nouveau + yours truly = A lot of *****in' in the Arch Forums.
Missed that thanks.
