    Only if you have a graphic card and monitor that supports 64 bit color, otherwise there will be no difference. Most graphic cards and monitors can only display up to 32 bit color, some will only support up to 24 bit color.

    Because both graphic card and monitor must support 64 bit color or it will still just display as 32 bit.

    Only professional computer graphic designers use 64 bit color since it is very expensive to buy both the graphic cards and monitors that support it. They use computer programs to distinguish the color depth.

    For most people their eyes can only distinguish a maximum of 32-bit color depth. Anything higher bit is invisible to most people they still will only see 32-bit even if a higher color depth is available.

    Bottom line is that no matter what, we can only see what the programmers have made available, so if they used a 32 bit color scheme, having 64 bit color capability will not make any difference at all.
