Let me clarify this for you.

32-bit OS supports a maximum of 4gb. (If you are using Windows XP 32-bit, a maximum of 3.5gb)

64-bit OS will and can utilize your 6gb of memory.

Its actually more like 3.2GB. It will just display it as having 4GB usually.

I have seen it say a number of different things though.

You need to get 64 bit OS.

Or your RAM goes to waste.
