One big thing to keep in mind is that OpenBSD doesn't have bigmem support yet. You'll be limited to 4 GB RAM even on amd64.

On the other hand, I've been running CURRENT on my work desktop since 4.5, and only once have I run into a problem that made me want to downgrade (and the problem was fixed very quickly, so I simply upgraded to a newer snapshot to resolve the issue).

A lot of this success is related to what hardware I have, so YMMV with running current (though current tends to support the most hardware and have the most functionality).
