    If you plan on going x64, you should up the ram some more. It sounds like cost is a big issue and memory is one of those things that you will gets lots of bang for your buck. Besides, x64 uses quite a bit more than 32bit.

    Also are you using raid? If so make sure you have a hardware controller as that will ease the load on the CPU a lot.

    x64 uses minimal extra memory over the i386 version. It's an extra MB or so if I remember correctly.

    hasn't it been said though that the java uvm is a bit faster on 32-bit, and the only reason to run 64-bit is if you actually need large amounts of memory (that is, 8gb+)?

    I would simply submit that the 64bit kernel and related kernel modules aren't quite as polished. There are different issues that revolve around the java environment as well for the same reasons.

    I have been reading up on the x64 kernel and seems to have some more issues than the 32bit. If 4gb will work with the premium filter (figuring 100 clients behind it) then I'll stick with 32bit and 4gb of ram.

    Using the Supermicro MB C7P67 with i5 2500K CPU and Kingston 4x4GB 1333 RAM, works great
