Hold off buying a 64-bit desktop unless you write your own software, as there isn't much commercial product support out there yet.

As for Moore's Law, here's a quote from Intel:

"Indium antimonide is one example of several new materials that Intel will continue to investigate in order to ensure that Moore's Law extends well beyond the next decade," says Ken David, director of components research for Intel's Technology and Manufacturing Group.

The AMD Athlon FX-57 is currently the fastest CPU available for most tasks.
