  1. You need a 64-bit OS for more then 4GB ram. Your one is a 32-bit and support 4GB minus some KB reserved for Hardware = 3.22GB
  2. You are running windows XP 32-bit, due to operating system addressing constraints a 32-bit operating system can not address more than 3.2GB ram, you need to get a 64-bit version of windows, windows 7 or windows 8 would be best...

    As for a video card, what resolution is your monitor?? Do you play games? What games?
  3. it didn't say the XP is 64bit.
  4. You have i7 3770 and you running XP?

    In that case if you have a reliable 400+ Watt PSU get something like a HD7770(sapphire has an awesome version thats very quite and cool)

    Any Graphics card larger would be a waste of money for your use...

    Just give me your PSU specs so that I can check if you have the required PCI-e power connector and high enough Wattage... But i am sure you do.
