I didn't mean to emulate F13 64-bit on the 32-bit server for Option 3.  I assumed, perhaps wrongly, that "another machine" was a 64-bit one that you were using for something else.

As far as the benefits of 64-bit:  For general, generic computer use, there really isn't one unless you have applications that need to access more than 3GB of contiguous RAM simultaneously like for major number crunching or 3D rendering or huge databases, etc.
