BO Ent XI 3.1 SP3 is compatible with WIN 32 bit OS or WIN 64 bit OS


I am in a process of upgrading the Business Objects(BO) Enterprise XI R2-SP2 to BO Ent XI 3.1-SP3.

BO Ent XI R2 is running on Windows Server 2003 -32 bit with 16 GB RAM.

I wish to know whether there is any Operating System upgrade is recommended for BO Ent XI 3.1 considering performance and server load handling.

Can a upgrade to 64bit OS similar to Windows 7 improve the RAM utilisation and boost the performance.

Your suggestions are welcome.
