Its typically not recommended to install Office 2010 x64 unless it is for development testing.

you need the special x64 Office 2010 updates. The 32Bit updates don't work.

I don't understand your question. For x64 Vista/7 you need different updates compared to the 32Bit version. For Office 2010 this is the same. Large Excel and Access files can benefit from x64. For normal users you can stay at the 32Bit Office until all 3rd party software vendors update their addons to support the 64Bit version.
