Default Ddr2 Ram ?

I had 2gigs @800MHz, but I just updated to 4gigs @800MHz, but the thing is, my cpu only reads 3.5gigs.

I did some research and it says that 32bit OS can only read up to 3.5gigs of ram, is that true? So if I get a 64bit OS will it read all 4gigs of ram? If this is true, should I switch to a 64bit OS, or is it not worth it? Also if anyone knows, how is Vista 64Bit? Does it have a lot of bugs? Right now I'm on a 32bit XP Home Version OS, but am planning to move to Vista for DX10. Thank you.

Yes xp 32 will only read 3.somthing never the full amount, not sure if vista 32 can i think its only the 64bit. Not sure what u want to use vista for if its games well personally i dont like it for games, sucks on my pc in fact i cant even get it working on my gfx card refuses to work. Maybe someone else with vista 64 will be able to help on the bugs and issues .

Tell u what cos ur not using the full amount of ram, send me a stick over... my address is...
