We are right on the edge. For the most part, 32bit will give you minimum settings these days.
If you have a 4gb GPU, PC explodes?

There's literally no reason now to not have a 64 bit OS.

No, I think they were confused. If you have 3.5gb RAM and a 4gb GPU, you still have 3.5gb RAM.

You should make the move to 64 bit OS. More games are using 64 bit, and within a year or so, most games will require it. GalCiv 3, for example, is a 64 bit game.
Besides, 64 bit has other advantages, in terms of RAM, HDD sizes (without needing to partition), etc.

Never tried, it might just not boot, or it might stop seeing video memory at some point.
Also, it seems I misread how the memory works.
But I found an interesting post that covers it better

Crysis was the first 64-bit game
you just didn't hear a lot of bickering about it 'cuz nobody had the system then to utilize it
Pretty sure BF4 requires it

If however you mean a 64-bit operating system (which is what I'm assuming), then no. And no.
It's pretty much the same as 4 core CPU requirement. As long as 32 bit is still prevalent and can offer great playability there is no reason to require 64 bit/4cores. Now, when 64 bit/4core are the standards for even non gaming computers, then it should be requried/standard.
This is coming from someone running 64 bit/4core.
Bassically, we're just a couple years away. Should it be done? Yes. Should it be done today at the time of this post? No.
Adoption takes a little bit, and as we still have gamers that run on XP at full capacity, there's no reason to force it quite yet.

64 bit= a face melting 192 gb of RAM (that's the max it can go)
32 bit= 4 gb of RAM (yep)
BUT, drivers for 64 bit are kinda hard to find...
