No you don't - you can access up to 64GB of ram with the 32-bit kernel.
What the 64-bit one does, though, is let processes have access to more
than 2GB of RAM each (which would be handy) and increase the speed of
many of the operations involved in image manipulation.
I've not come across anything that doesn't work on 64 bit for a while.
For several years it's only been Adobe Flash that was unhappy (you had
to run the 32 bit one through a wrapper) but I gather the new one is
natively 64-bit. Either way, it's stable now.
So you do want an amd64 kernel, just not for the reason you thought you
