I would go with the 64 just for easier upgradeability in the future - 64-bit is coming!

Yes, I agree. 64-bit is the way of the future. The AMD Athlon 64 series CPU is the primary CPU you can get now. They have backward compatibility with 32-bit hardware and software and full 64-bit ready for Windows Vista 64-bit coming out late next year.
