[vox-tech] 64 or 32 bit with 2 Gigs of Ram. One over the other?

It would seem that 64 bit is just better, but I have this Net top box
with 2 Gigs of ram, and I am wondering if anyone can justify running one
over another. I am just running this as a server and no graphical
interface. I have Xen running in paravirtualized mode on Debian.

Is there more overhead with 64 bit addressing? I take it the alu is
operating at 64 bit on everything in 64 bit mode? That would seem like
it could do operations with twice the width.

Any thoughts?
