2GB DIMMs on x32?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to get an Asus P5B deluxe, can I use 2GB DIMMs with an x32 OS? I know there's a 4GB max, but I'd like to have room to expand to 8GB when I switch to x64

You can use 2GB DIMMs, however maximum capacity for a 32 bit OS is 3.25GB.

The motherboard is capability of holding 8GB.

Isn't this changing with Vista 32bit Ultimate Edition?

The limitation has to do with the 32 bit nature of the OS. There is nothing you can do to make a 32bit OS support more than 3.25GB of memory.
