If i5s have a 4 or 6MB cache, and if i7s have an 8MB cache, how would an i5 be better for gaming?

64-bit os on (2) 32-bit processors?
Okay, now my question is: Can you run a 64-bit OS on 2-32 bit processors? Note: i don't want to try this, but in theory it should work if the OS can address both processors as 1 64 bit processor, correct?
