I have a server running SQL 2000 on a Windows Server 2003, 32 bit platform.  I have plans on upgrading this database to SQL 2005.

I have a server running Windows Server 2008, 64 bit platform.  Can I move my newly upgraded SQL 2005 database to my 64 bit server?

Yes.  User databases created on 32 bit versions can be moved to 64 bit and vice versa.
