I recently install my Biostar GT220 GDDR3.. After I install the newly buy Video Card, my 4gbRam turns to 3.5gb
So this is my question
1. Is this affected to my O.S. Win7 32bit Professional ?, I use 32bit because I read that 32bit can handle 4gb RAM
2. Or this is just the effect of GT220 GDDR3?
I want to ask first because I dont want to format my PC immediately to 64bit OS or what...
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional
OS Service Pack: Service Pack 1
Processor: Athlon II x3 445
Mobo: ASROCK n68c-s UCC
Ram: 2x2gb 1333 Corsair Value Select
VGA: Nvidia GeForce GT220 1gb 128bit
As Vitornob correctly stated, Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit can address up to 4GB of memory; however, typically speaking, 32-bit operating systems address around 3GB of memory. Just for future reference regarding the limitations of different Windows editions, you may find this resource helpful.
