SOmething like 8mb but it is not quite as effective at finding factors that way.

Also why would 64bit linux run better than 32bit linux considering the total amount of ram installed is not any where near 4GB?

I thought 32 bit vs 64 bit only had to do with the amount of memory addressable?
There are also some other 64 bit integer arithmetic operations that can be useful.
