@Lee:  I find that hard to believe x64 will be slower than x86 with
<4GB of memory.  I can't think of a reason why that might be the case.
 I'd like to know for certain - could you share the benchmarks or
article with us?

For anyone following this thread:  PAE compared to 32-bit and 64-bit >
and the slight performance hit of PAE.
