Before you consider buying a 64-bit OS, make sure you can find all your 64-bit drivers, for your software.

Its worth it because 64 bit also supports more ram.

Lets say if I wanna run Autodesk 3DS Max or Maya both 64 apps...will I have to install the Vista 64 version, or can they be run seperately?

If they're both 64-bit applications, you should get a 64-bit OS.
