I wouldn't argue against the fact that Myth "can use" more RAM, but it doesn't 
"need" it. Certainly I wouldn't go with a 64-bit system solely so Myth could 
have more than 4GB of RAM, unless you needed it for something else in 
addition to Myth.

I also wonder if more RAM on the graphics card might be more useful than main 
system RAM, with VDPAU.
