The system has 8 CPUs w/ 32 GB - I'm hoping to see some benefit to large caches -
Am I missing something key with postgreSQL?
Yes - we have seen with oracle 64 bit that there can be as much as a 10% hit moving from 32 - but we make it up big time with large db-buffer sizes that drastically

Well for Opteron you should also gain from the very high memory bandwidth and the fact that it has I believe "3" FP units per CPU.
