You could potentially get a boost iff the codecs were recompiled to take 
advantage of the 64 bit integer units I guess, you won't see any gains 
otherwise. Personally I had Win64 on my machine here (dual opteron) and 
removed it after a few days to revert to XP, enough stuff didn't work 
properly that it really wasn't worth bothering with.
