Reconfiguring the boot.ini for PAE will open up some. With the 975 chipset you can run 3 gigs as well. 2 X 1024 and 2 X 512 together.
This is what I've read as well & I'd expect with the amount of testing & system's you've built you'd know ccp!

According to my graphics card there is 554mbs of texture memory usage with it so 554 -320 = 234mbs of shared memory.
So I would imagine this memory amount will be deducted from the total 4Gbs on the installed memory for a grand total of 3,862mbs.

OR, 320+554 = 874 - 4096mbs = 3322mbs of showing installed memory.

OR, 4096-320= 3776mbs of showing installed memory.

Or am I reading this all wrong? See what I mean! LOL

Would be nice if I knew everything already, but I don't...
Thanks for helping me to understand this clearer.
