I just bought a Dell 2850 (2 2.8GHZ dual core processors). The server
will be used as a webserver, e-mail server. and a db server (both
PostgresQL and My SQL Beyond the breaking of the 4 Gig RAM barrier, is
there any compelling reason to use a 32 bit i386 or a 64 bit AMD OS?
The machine currently has just a gig of RAM but I'm going to add more,

A pointer to an article that discusses the 32 bit v 64 bit question
