You have 16GB of ram because....

And i believe the limit of x64 windows is 128GB 192GB of RAM, but I cant remember where I saw that...

EDIT: Home Premium does have a 16GB limit on RAM, but that does not include video memory....

Ultimate has a 192GB RAM limit...

Yup, 16GB limit, you're wasting 3GB.

video memory is dynamically mapped/allocated at I/O address range.
hence, it is always fixed size. the discrete video memory is not counted.
only the memory(I/O footprint) is counted. not the individual GDDR5 sizes.

This is a software limitation put in place by MS and it does not include Video RAM. You should have 16gb of available system RAM.
