I have always read that the only reason to use a 64-bit OS is if you 
want more than 3GB of RAM.  Other than that I have herd no real good 
reason to use a 64-bit OS.

Both my laptop and desktop have 64-bit chips and on both I use a 
standard 32-bit system.  I am very happy with 1GB of RAM in both and 
don't need anymore than 3GB.  64-bit chips are still optimized to be 
used in a 32-bit system and work just as good, if not better, than a 
32-bit chip.
