im guessing since xeons are mainly left for servers they wont be needed in this case. although i think i have seen premade editing comps with xeons

i think he should get 64-bit, then he will be able to utilize all 4 gb in the future, and the price is pretty similiar

I thought the q6600 was 64-bit.

64 bit deals with the amount of ram you need. q6600 can run on 32 or 64 bit.
