Not much to be gained on your current hardware, you may see a bit more memory if you install the 64bit version as with the 32bit version you are likely to be able to see only about 3.5Gb of RAM and not the full 4GB, whereas the 64 bit version will see it all - thats about it really - unless you want to install Exchnage 2007 on the machine - which requires 64bit - but if its going to be a DC don't put exchange on it.

Check on availibility of drivers before deciding

Would i get a better performance from the 64 bit version ?

A 64 bit per circulate should improve the server proformance ?

In theory you might see a little bit IF you use 64bit applications, but don't expect the difference to be noticable
