What's the actual relevance of a 64-bit version?

The most obvious advantage is that the game client will be able to make use of 4GB+ RAM (or ~3.25GB+ RAM in practice since that is the practical limit of WinXP 32-bit due to reserved system memory) in a full 64-bit environment (64-bit client and OS).
The big question in that context obviously is whether the game client is made to perform better (= scaling) when there is more free memory available. Only time and benchmarks will tell.
