I have both XP-32 and 64 going on my rig. I'll try to run some benches tonight if I have time.

I wouldn't hold my breath. The XP-64 version is about 10-30% slower depending on resolution used. Granted I only have a 6600 GT and 1 GB of RAM (2 GB is on the way) but the regular 32-bit version running on x64 is still faster. 1280x1024, 2xQ AA and 8x AF is still quite playable.

One thing to remember, though, is that the x64 version uses a DX9 renderer while x86 uses DX8. I honestly didn't see much of a difference from a visual standpoint.

The 32bit version also has a DX9 renderer, but it uses DX8 by default. You can force DX9, but there is no different in IQ or performance. At least that was the case when I tested it last year.

Whenever I try to force DX9 the game crashes. It's always done this so it's not a big deal to me.

You can't. Its the 64bit version of the game which requires a 64bit os. It doesn't look like your missing much though, so don't worry about it.
