How much RAM will Vista support? And, is there a difference in the amount of ram between their 4 different versions of Vista?

Any supportive links would be appreciated! :huh:

Thanks in advance for the help! :huh:

No links, but my 4gB of RAM is only recognized as 3.25 by Vista 32 bit. I understand that the 64 bit version will recognize all of it.

There should be no differences between the versions tho'.

Thanks usasma. I've done some checking and come up empty handed as far as max ram and whatnot. I'm told that vista 64 will support up to 64gb of ram :huh: ......which is why I posted, to see if it actually will or not.

32-bit versions is limited to around 3.3GB as usasma said. The 64-bit versions vary between editions: Home Basic 8GB, Home Premium 16GB and the rest 128GB+.

EDIT: Maybe I should add that most consumer motherboards only support 4-8GB of memory. 18446744073GB is the theoretical limit for a 64-bit operating system.

If you have a computer with more than 4GB of RAM, Vista 64 will support it. Computers that have that much RAM is rare though.
