Can I create a render farm using SATA to SCSI and 64 bit to 32 bit?

Hi there:

Last year I purchased a Dell Precision 650 with dual 3.2 Xeons, 4 Gigs of RAM and an Nvidia QUadroFX 3000 video card. Everything is SCSI in my system and I've got a Medea Video RAID and G-tech Firewire drive... and an assortment of lesser firewire drives I keep my sound effects and stuff on.

This year I want to get into hi def or just HDV and I'm learning that for my needs I may need to purchase a turnkey system with something like the Matrox Axio or a Kona card.

The system I'm looking at uses SATA drives and AMD 64 bit processors. I have two questions:

1: Can I create a render farm using this new 64 bit workstation and my current 32 bit workstation?

2: Will it work if the new computer is SATA and my current computer is SCSI?

Thanks for any suggestions!
