XP SP2 patch allows 32bit XP to recognize/utilize 4GB RAM?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Heard there's a patch for 32 bit XP SP2 that lets it see up to 4gb, instead of the regular 3gb. Is this true? Would 4GB be worthwile for upcoming games like Crysis, etc.?

There is a 32Bit OS out seing all 4GB of ram... Win 2000 Advanced Server!
The thing is that this Advenced Server OS is the worst OS you can get for Games!

Pretty sure that is BS.

I wouldn't mind someone proving me wrong though...

The most windows can see is only 3.5gbs on XP 32bit, I think vista 32bit can only see 4 too....

like they said, 32 bit just can't use more than like 3 or 3.2 Gb of RAM, you would have to get vista to use all 4 gigs
