if you don't need a 64bit Xen (or even it's ability to run 64 and 32p guests
concurrently) i would prefer the 32bit-pae xen. I assume the 64bit version has
recently become more stable, but in the days of 3.0.3 and early 3.1 64bit it was
somewhat painful to use ;)
I don't know your future plans at that machine, but you've currently 4G mem
installed. With 32bit-pae hypervisor you'll be able to use up to 16G.
We're using 32bit-pae on every xen-box (mixed processors but about 80% intel),
the only problems where a domU segfaults dom0 encountered on setups with a 3.1 
and a 3.0.3 xenified dom0 kernels.
