But honestly if you want 64-bit to take advantage of the extra RAM, I'd just use a 32-bit VM for coding. Much easier than dual booting, especially if that's all you'll use the 32-bit environment for.
or u can convert the un-used ram into a logical disk and redirect your temp folder /page files to it

gets u one heck of a speed kick
