Was just about to purchase this:

metal orient said:
Okay so actually i lied and it's only a £28 difference but every little helps right?

Intel Core i5-2400 £143

Gigabyte GA-H61MA-D3V GEN3 £47

GeiL Black Dragon 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 £37

Asus HD 6850 DirectCU V2 £95

500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200 £58

500W Corsair Builder Series 500CX V2 £45

Samsung SH-S222BB/BEBE DVD Writer £12

BitFenix Shinobi £43

MICROSOFT Windows Home Premium 7 SP1 64-bit EN 1pk - OEM £70

Total cost: £561.19

But i noticed the motherboard said "2 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 16 GB of system memory
* Due to Windows 32-bit operating system limitation, when more than 4 GB of physical memory is installed, the actual memory size displayed will be less than 4 GB."

Does this mean i will need to get the 32-bit Win7? :S
Its my first build btw.
