Is 64 Bit good for gaming?

i upgraded to 64bit 5 years ago but ran into a few issues back then which made me switch back to 32 bit. I'm about to install the W7 RC and wanted to know if it was worth going with 64 bit. I've heard of people have issues with gaming sometimes with 64bit vista, any truth to this?

My system is :

E4300 @ 3.15Ghz
PowerColor 4830 512MB
2x pc6400 2Gb Corsair.

Reports indicate that a 64-bit OS is slightly faster in many games. I don't know if the driver issue has receded into the past, one hopes so!
