First you need to see if there are drivers will run your devices on 2008 x64.    If they do and all the software you require will run I would go with 2008 x64.

Only questions are about the modem and printer?   Most printers should work?    Is it a standard HP, Xerox, etc?     For the modem Windows 2008 might install it with something native.    What are he models of both of these devices?
