I find the 64 bit version to be on par with the 32 bit version. I do think
64 bit is faster when using it for GIS with large datasets. I have been
using 64 bit for years without remorse.  Now, no 64 bit Windows OS has ever
been worth using.

I've already did it.

Well, in my ThinkPad R61 (Core2 Duo CPU T9300 @ 2.50GHz) I got 1.1
times difference (in favour of 64-bit) with couple of videofiles
encoded. (By the way, it means that VM performs almost 1.5 worse then
the real HW).
