Default amd64 or x86?

I recently broke down and purchased a new amd64 laptop after finally killing the old one. As this is my first AMD64 box I was attempting to install FreeBSD 7.0 x64 on it. After fighting with it for a few days trying to get it to boot the installer (and giving it all sorts of flags) I am going to be installing the 32bit version tonight.
Am I giving up on any worthwhile features by going this route? Additionally, if I am, can I install a 64bit kernel on a 32bit userland to get some of the benifits back?

Thanks
