I was going to say, "Try the forum 'Windows-based Servers'", then noticed that you've done that already: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=108257 Good luck!
> I'm looking into the 64 bit option because of the possibility of being 'virtualised' if they are offering me more than 4 gig of ram
There are many virtualizing technologies. The IT people in your school must give you all the information about their particular setup. More than 4 GB RAM _per VM_ sounds a bit high for me.
> is there any point if php etc can't take advantage of it.
Who said that? My advice was "even if you get everything going, specially check your PHP accelerator" I was talking about the accelerator and didn't say it won't work rather you should make sure that it works. See the running discussion http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=108223
Hardware and performance
Is Moodle 64 bit and would you put it on virtual servers?
