I meant up to 128Gbs of RAM, not 16Gb. Hell, there's server motherboards that support. . . . .just checked newegg. What I meant is that software wise a 64Bit Operating system can handle up to 128Gbs of RAM. I just found out that there is in deed server motherboards out there that accept 128GBs of RAM:
Just as said before, a 32 Bit OS can only support up to 4Gb of RAM total including video RAM. Now that I looked it up, It seems that a 64 Bit OS can reach up to server systems of around 2TB of RAM! Even though this is considering that computers using 2TB of RAM are either supercomputers or DataCenter Computers, Vista 64Bit Home basic has a limit to 8Gb, 64 Bit Home Premium has a limit to 16Gb, and 64 Bit Vista Ultimate, Enterprise, and Business limit it to 128Gb.
It's not the Version (32 or 64 Bit) but the OS itself. But almost all 32 Bit windows software limit it to 4Gb. 32 Bit windows server OS's limit it to 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB.
Here's where I got that information:
Can't find the hypothetical limitation of 64Bit Software, but I know its really high.
