memory need in 64 bit environment

If a SS database is moved as it is from a 32 bit installation/OS to 64 bit SS/OS under the same load conditions, does it require more RAM memory or the same should suffice for equivalent response/caching?

It should be same provided both the servers have the same set of applications supported..
SQL Server should use the same amount of memory..
You don't need more momory; if your system, applications and sql server were running fine on 32bit edition, you won't need to add more memory when you upgrade to 64bit. I did the same upgrade and everything just work great, and even faster than before ! So keep everything as it is now. Cheers !
