Best idea is to buy a 64-bit CPU, they are not that expensive, and you will never have any unallocated memory anymore. Moreover, a server in 2010 should have a 64-bit CPU, unless you run a slimmed down webserver on Linux, that may work on 32-bit. Windows is notorious for bad memory behaviour, so you are forced to increase physical memory, not limited by any CPU barrier, which means 64-bit.
