I assure you, the move to 64-bit executables is not the reason Chrome and your 3 JVMs are running you out of RAM.

Consider a 32-bit executable that is 4 GB in size.
Do you know of one 32-bit executable that is 4 GB in size? Just one? OK, how about 3 GB? No. What about 2 GB or 1 GB? Oh so it's not really relevant. Well have you considered the following: "Anyway I think I'm done with this topic"? I didn't think so.
I've had 6-16 GB in all my desktop machines for years now. also irrelevant.
