Once you removed one of the 2gb dimms you starting running the board in the single channel not preferred dual channel mode. With prices down on memory you may want to look at getting another pair.
The second link for the winsupersite is a joke for the most part and not based on facts. When bringing that site up with a testers for MS they bark back with "don't listen to that crap. reviews the Windows blogs!".
Before pushing 64bit on people you may want to know some MS facts.
"If I'm running a 64-bit version of Windows, do I need 64-bit drivers for my devices?
Yes, all hardware devices need 64-bit drivers to work on a 64-bit version of Windows. To learn how to check for drivers, see Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly or go to the device manufacturer's website. You can also get information about drivers by going to the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor website.
Additionally, some 32-bit programs might use embedded 32-bit drivers, which might make the programs work improperly." http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...033.mspx#EEAAC
When signing up for testing 7 I ran into a snag right off simply trying to get connected online due to the lack of driver support seen for the older type dsl setup here thanks to no further support from the software company for the ISP used here.
That was seen when using the 64bit upgrade advisor recommending Ultimate.
