If he needs the 64 bit support (large data sets as I mentionned before).
I would try the 64 bit build.
If he is just considering 64 bit build because he has a 64 bit
machine... I would pass and use the 32 bit build.
It's as simple as that. Don't use 64 bit build unless you really have a
requirement for supporting 64 bit data sets.
