It's up to you.  Personally, I still use a 32bit install of Debian on
all my machines, even those with 8GB of RAM.
But I use an amd64 kernel on all machines that use a 64bit CPU.

Don't know much about Ubuntu, but from a Debian "386" install you can
just "aptitude install linux-image-amd64", and I'd expect the same will
work under Ubuntu.
