No, you do not need a 64-bit OS, and I recommend that you don't get one. XP 64-bit is still buggy and it has almost no driver support.

so, umm, err yeah

If your not going to get xp64, you might as well wait until mid 2006 when Vista comes out to get your 64 bit processor. By then the price should go down also.
