need to buy a PC - can someone help with the new technologies?

I have a PC with an AMD 6400, 4GB ram, 512 graphics, etc...and it works good... but as all computers do after several years of hard use, it's starting to age and have minor issues hardware wise and I just want to jump the gun before I have any real problems.

My main program is Pro Tools. This configuration runs PT very well but I am looking to upgrade by spring.

Should I be going with Windows 7 professional 64 bit and and the best Intel i7 quad core processor, 8GB ram? I am assuming that by then Pro Tools will be 64 bit. Is there even an option for 64 bit anymore or is everything just 64 by default now?

I am a gear head but not SUPER up on all the PC lingo out there...
