    Will it be beneficial? Do you have more then 4gig of ram? if not then no.

    Do you realize that when you boot up in 64bit mode, you're only talking about starting the 64bit kernel, the other Snow Leopard subsystems are already 64bit. In fact you could be running 64bit apps in Leopard and snow leopard even if the kernel is 32bit.
