  1. 32 bit, will see a bit under 3.5 gig, 64 bit will run whatever your motherboard maximum is.
  2. I think it varies by processor/memory controller, and of course, your motherboard when it comes down to it. Then there is that ugly fact that a 2x8GB kit costs around $800 if both your processor and motherboard support it.

    Some Nehalems max at 24GB -- a few of the SB processors spec 32GB max. XP-64 will get you 128GB maximum.
  3. 1- 3.5GB for x86
    2- 128GB for x64

    But keep in mind that the chipset also has a limit.

    The processor don't determine the amount of ram it is determined by the operating system & motherboard as a 32 bit operating system can only use 4 GB where a 64 bit can use as much as the motherboard allows.

    Sorry -- I'm not very comfortable with this.

    The processor, motherboard and operating system all have an impact.
