Going from experience, the only reason I'm using the 64-bit version of 
Hardy at the moment is because I have 4GB of ram.  The 32-bit version 
only seems to support about 3.5GB out of the box (I'm sure it's tweak 
able to run with more).

I'd say if you have less than 4GB memory, stick with 32-bit, especially 
if you want to use things like the Adobe Flash Plugin.
