Nope, at least not in my experience. My kids play games just as fast as I do (they've got 32 bit systems with 4 gB of RAM - and I've got 64 bit with 8 gB of RAM).
My wife and I both have 32" Sharp Aquos HDTV's as monitors - and there's no difference in display properties either. (Hers is 32 bit/4 gB of RAM and mine is 64 bit/8 gB of RAM).
The primary benefit of 64 bit computing is, IMO, the increased ability to address greater than 4 gB of RAM. But, as happened with XP and is happening with Vista - the sweet spot for memory is rising as programmers realize that they can use more memory. Once the use of 64 bit becomes commonplace - then the need for greater than 4 gB will become commonplace. In short, apps don't need more than 4 gB now - but in a couple of years that'll become commonplace.
