Drivers - external HDDs (USB/Firewire) shouldn't be a problem.

Printers, video, scanners ... stuff like that should be a bit more problematic.

Common modems should be supported out of the box.

Hmm. Have a look at Device Manager. Pretty much everything there depends on drivers. Most of them should ship in the WinBox but it's worth checking.

Being the kind of guy who likes to watch while others dance out there on the edge, I'd turn the question around. Is there any compelling reason TO get 64-bit Windows instead of 32-bit? What's it buy you?

These might be useful:
