We just had the 32 vs. 64 bit discussion a few weeks ago so you might
want to search the archives.  My understanding is that the only benefit
of 64bit over 32bit is the ability to directly access much more RAM, so
if your database will benefit from more RAM, and you're going to take
advantage of the ability to give it more RAM on 64-bit, then you'll
probably notice a significant improvement.  If not, then you'd probably
be better off sticking with 32-bit, unless the 64-bit machine also has
other improvements (which is very likely) like a faster bus, faster
memory access, faster/more disks, etc. - then you might get some
performance boosts from those components regardless of the 64 vs. 32 bit
address space.
