64-bit Linux will use all available memory in your computer very well. You can
expect much better performance after adding more memory if now you are using
swap. Run "top" to see how much swap you are using; if more than 0 then adding
more memory to your computer is good idea and you can expect better
performance. Even if you have zero swap usage additional memory can be used by
Linux for caching and buffers to improve performance.
However, 64-bit Linux kernel or Wine can't do anything to remove 32-bit
limitations from 32-bit applications (vitamin already explained these
limitations to you).
