So what is the problem... Windows sees 1024MB to every gigabyte while designers see 1000MBs to every Gigabyte, pain isnt it? Same thing with clock rates... A 2.2GHz processor is really only 2.18 in Windows... OS's are gay that way, but its doesnt matter, you have 2GB, it will use it as such, I wouldn't be freaked out about it.

If the cache bios in ram is selected in your bios, then your useing up ram there. But its better to have that turned on.
