Default Crysis 32 vs. 64

I just started running Vista Ultimate x64 and I noticed my Crysis shortcut is pointing to the 64-bit version. I didn't even know there was one, maybe because it installed in the x86 Program files.

Anyway, under Vista x64, which is faster? Will the x64 version use memory better? (I have 4GB).

I gave x64 a shot for Crysis alone and I've gone back to x86. There was no noticable benefit with x64. In fact, I noticed a 2-3 frame difference in favor of x86. It's a shame because I have 4gb of ram and I'd like to think that would make some difference in x64 since it can see it all.
