High Mem Options

Hello all,
Yet another quick question...is there any down side to using the
64GB option over the 4GB option if the machine only has 2GB of RAM onboard??
I would think this would be a performance issue? Does the kernel only use
the translation table if it has to access any memory location over 4GB?
