This motherboard is advertised with total memory capacity of 16GB but in the manual it is recommended that only 3GB or less to be used with windowsXP 32-bit. The manual seem not to make a very firm stand on this point and so i assume more than 3GB can be installed with some added tweaking. Is this possible? Thanks for advice!

32-bit OS can only address 4GB RAM max, but with problems, so they recommend 3GB max.

You can put the 4 gb of ram in... no probs BUT. Windows XP will only use up to 3 Gb the last 1 gb will be wasted as windows will not address it. The new windows based on 64bit will solve this but its not out yet.

^^xp 64 is out and will adress the issue of memory, however. there are noted driver problems. the 32 bit version with 2gb of ram will do fine until drivers are updated or vista comes out.
