32-bit will only handle 4GB of RAM.  64-bit is needed for more than 4GB.  More than the performance increase of having more memory, there is often a performance increase in 64-bit simply because the system is crunching 64-bits of instructions for each clock cycle, rather than 32-bits ... theoretically.  In practice, you may not actually notice or see a large difference.

What version of Server?  If you are using Server 2008 Standard x86 (32 bit version of Windows) then 4GB is the max and there will be no benefits to adding additional memory.  However if you are using x64 (64 bit) version of Server than by all means add more.  It can use up to 32GB.
