RAM guy, XP Pro 32bit, max RAM 3 gig?


Recommended Posts

Hello RAM guy


I'm about to build a system with an Asus M2N32SLI Deluxe, 4 gigs of CM2X1024-6400C4D RAM (2 twin matched sets) and Windows XP Pro (32bit version)


Can the 32 bit version of XP Pro use more than 3 gigs?


I've read a bit that it can't, is this true?


If so is there anything I can do to make it work?


Also if this is true, should I not install all the sticks or would it be better to fill all the slots anyway?


Thank you

Well several things


Not in any particular order


1: "Trying" to run Microsoft's new flight simulator, full out.


2: Heavy multimedia editing and such as large AVI file capturing, processing and DVD authoring.


3: Running CAD & CAD like programs.


4: Running office type programs.


Most of all I want to be able to run the above at the same time as other programs without choking the machine.

FSX is like a wee young'n... it has yet to grow into something that fits. (let's see what the upcoming patch does for playability. If I understand correctly, FSX doesn't have dual core support atm


Running office apps with another programs, I could understand but CAD and the items listed in point 2 as well as other programs??
