Is this reasonable ?

My current mail/uucp/web/router/firewall machine is a D820-based machinie
(dual core pentium at 2.8 GHz) with two gmirror-ed 160 GB SATA drives
running a somewhat oldish 6.1-STABLE.  It has only 512 MB of memory and
perform rather well.

With all the very nice point of ZFS, would it be reasonable to run
7.0/amd64 on it?  The point being moving to amd64 as ZFS is more optimized
for this arhitecture.  Should I try to get more memory for it (it is a Dell
9150 machine)? or could it run as is?
