That is a good question to ask as their seems to be a lot of misconception as to memory usage and how much is required to run intensive applications. Have a look at this comparison from Phoronix
"Coming up in our forums was a testing request to compare the performance of Linux between using 32-bit, 32-bit PAE, and 64-bit kernels. This is coming after Linus Torvalds has spoke of 25% performance differences between kernels using CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G and those without this option that allows 32-bit builds to address up to 4GB of physical RAM on a system. We decided to compare the performance of the 32-bit, 32-bit PAE, and 64-bit kernels on a modern desktop system and here are the results." >http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=ubuntu_32_pae&num=1
