So is this a question?

I don't get it.

If your asking, then you need a 64bit OS to recognize more than 3.25gig of ram.

ZKilla, that guy's thread regarding ram has nothing to do with recognition of RAM. His computer was having problems with 4 sticks installed. I don't think that's usually the case.

I havent seen many posts concerning that subject. But if people are asking you specifically through pm or something, then I guess thats a different story.
