Never thought I'd live to hear "a little over 2 gig" referred to as  
"limited" :-)

I've not found a need for more than 2G on a Myth system, but obviously  
"other stuff" might take advantage of it, you can't ever have to much.

So a 64-bit machine couldn't hurt if you can put up with things like  
SWF and such being a little problem.

But I would really suggest that a Myth machine, at least a B/E, be a  
dedicated machine if at all possible.
