You shouldn't have any trouble using a 64-bit system.  SL viewers are32-bit applications, but your computer should recognize that and operate normally.  If you do have any trouble, you can force 32-bit emulation manually by finding your viewer's exe file in your hard drive and right clicking on it.  Select Properties >> Compatability  and indicate that you want the file to be compatible with Windows XP.

We have been trying to get Linden Lab to change the System Requirements page for over a year but it still says Windows 7 (32-bit only). To try and help until whoever is responsible for that page actually corrects it, Torley Linden did set up a Wiki page explaining Windows 7 64-bit is fully supported and you can read it here.

Second Life always ran on 64 bit systems.  The problems people experienced a couple years ago with SL and 64 bit systems was drivers........you needed to have a driver that was coded for 64 bit systems.  All 64 bit operating systems are backward compatible to 32 bit applicationes.  It's going to be quite some time before 32 bit programs will not be able to be run on 64 bit systems............probably when the next operating system architecture is introduced and 32 bit compatibility will be dropped but 64 bit will remain.
