sapphire hd 7770 1ghz OC vapor-x edition
windows 8 pro

i built this system last week and posted on a few other forums with this problem with no one that could help or figure it out. when i built it in the system info it says 8 gigs (7.49gb usable) i have my monitor plugged into my 7770 and i checked the bios but there is nothing that i can see that will affect this.

updated bios to v1.6 to see if any changed i could make to the bios..nothing there

reinstalled everything updated to newest versions of drivers,chipset etc

checked to see if my 7770 is using all lanes of the pci-e and it is

I think your a bit confused, you may have 8Gb of system memory, how much system memory do you think windows needs to use to run ? And your problem is exactly what then ?

Reserved RAM is reserved and will not be free even if its not being used. I'm guessing that's what you are missing.

Windows 8 is a bit depressing. I haven't found anything exciting yet about it.
