Sure I know, but only if you use more than 4 you'd benefit more(easier) 
from 64 bit, for an average mythtv-system I didn't see ram-usage go over 
1-1,2 GB.
Besides, my main point would be that you can just change the motherboard 
and all and then start up again change some little things and you're 
good to go.
In my book that beats a reinstallation and back-up action.


P.S. This only holds if you didn't make a total mess of your system.
