32 bit addressing can only read 3-3.5GB RAM depending on the OS, so yes, it is true...

That's why all the big box companies are finally installing 64bit OSes

Does that have something to do with the processor?

Because once i was installing the windows it asked me about the bit ( i.e 32 or 64 ) my friend told me that if your processor is 32-bit then go with 32 bit
