I'll second that. There may not even be a price difference.
I've had quotes for otherwise comprable 32 bit Xeon servers
come in more expensive than 64 bit AMD machines.
One piece of advice I would offer is to make sure you buy
good ECC memory. I've been working with large servers
for the last few years, and trying to be cheap with
memory has caused a lot of hard to track down problems.
