+1 to davcon. As each new game we see better game construction geared to take advantage of higher memory amounts. Also you video memory amount is seen by the 32 bit OS as part of it's memory limits, this decreases the seen amount of system memory. The drawback for you is you would have to do a clean install of all software and drivers. Also a backup of your data, pics., music and anything else you wanted to save. It is not hard stuff to do but does take time.
