PDMWorks, Vista64+XP64+Server 2003

Our company designs complex machinery with 5000-10000 parts. So far most of the problems we have experienced with Solidworks appear to be related to our choice of the 64 bit version. Toolbox and various functional issues are not present on a networked XP32 laptop I use for road work.

We have (7) Solidworks 2009SP0 seats and will be implementing PDMWorks soon. Can I expect additional problems with 64 bit workstations and a 64 bit server? What about Vista and XP workstations accessing the same PDM server or is that not a factor?

Our VAR quoted about $20k to get this setup for us, but I think we will be further ahead if we install and service it ourselves. Any advice from someone who has gone through this recently?
