If you mean more than 4gb of ram then it is not possible with a 64bit os

If it's more than 4gb of ram you want then yes.

But it's not an upgrade. You have to reinstall.

Doesn't PAE break the NX bit?
- Data Execution Protection is more important.
- No Win32 (std) process can allocate more than 2GB RAM anyway
- Yes the other 2GB will be used, as you'll be running 80 or so processes (not processors) 'at once', plus the kernel.

32-bit Windows has smaller pointers, so for most apps (85%+) it's faster and uses less memory.

You can or you could use 64 bit and get your whole ram :)

Yes. It is superior in pretty much every way.

I wouldn't spend the extra money on Ultimate for gaming (although I sense a torrent initializing...).
