Mainly it is about ram but if you can use any software that could use more than 32 bits for processing (high precision math, games, photo editing) it would go faster. Really if you have 64 bit I do not see a reason to not use it except if you absolutely must have a 16 bit app from the 90's...

And in that case you should just use XP Mode or VMWare Unity View.

On your everday application probably not, im, web browsing (which is 32 bit mostly because flash is 32 only), but in anything that can use it it will be faster obviously, water trickling down a much larger pipe. There is no reason not to get it, it is not going to make it slower but it could make it faster in some instances.

Well, 32-bit OS is a dying breed. Windows 7 is the last 32-bit OS. It wouldn't be long before a 64-bit only applications appears on the scene.
