Why do I need an AMD64?

(Please CC me)


I'm pondering buying an Athlon64 machine. However, I wonder why
I would need a 64 bits machine.
I do not run a server, I don't need more than 4 gigs of RAM.
64 bits apps take more disk space, more RAM.
Are apps faster when running in 64 bits mode, compared to
a 32 bits machine of the same CPU frequency?

Are there any reasons not to stick to 32 bits currently?
