AMD64 is for 64bit Amd and Intel processors,

64-bit Intel *x86* processors. There was once another 64-bit architecture called ia64 used by Intel "Itanium" processors, not compatible with amd64.

i386 is a 32bit system for
old pre64 architectures.  So even though a 32bit will work on a 64bit
system I have yet to find a good reason for doing so.

Here are some good reasons to use a 32 bit system on 64 bit hardware :
- You are tight on memory (e.g. embedded system).
- You need to run software available only for 32 bit architecture.
