Okay you sound like a chill guy but can I ask. If you have 8GB of RAM and two graphics card that each have 1 GB of ram, why are you using a 32-bit operating system which can only utilize roughly 3.2 GB of RAM


Just thought I would ask...

One question. When you order stuff from Newegg...Do you get to deliver it to yourself!?!!
Haha! No, I don't live on my route. I need a few more years seniority before I can bid (and get) the route that I live on.

Good question. I bought the RAM before I realized I would need a 64 bit OS to use all 8 GB. By the time I found that out (which was about a half hour after installing the DIMMs and wondering why Windows wasn't recognizing all 8 GB) I figured I already had 'em in there so I decided to just leave 'em in. BIOS recognizes all 8GB though. P.S. My wife thinks your avatar is "amazing!"

Hahahahahha You should get a copy of windows 7 64-bit *cough cough*
It will be a little weird to game. I am not sure what happens to the Vram and stuff when it caps at 3.2GBs

Well, I'm in the middle of a new-ish build right now which will be running Win7 Ultimate. Mostly cuz I want to take advantage of DX10 and DX11 rendering/effects. My two GPUs are running in SLI, so technically I only have 1 GB of VRAM (if I understand correctly) and the gaming has never been better on my current system.
