I doubt that you will notice any big difference. While the AMD64 port is quite nicely tested and very swift by now, the optimizations towards Intel aren't bad either - even though this isn't true 64Bit processor. In this case the HD will probably be the bottle-neck, not being able to read and write the data quick enough to cause 100% CPU load. You would have to 'make -j 4' at least to get anywhere near 100% load (I even have to do that for 2 UltraSPARC II CPUs with 450MHz). And that really causes load on a hard drive. Just my 2 cents...
