Yeah, I know it would not recognize the full 4GB, but i am not installing 4GB, Im putting in 2 GB. If I was to put in the full 4 GB my system may recognize like 3.5 GB or something along that line but not nessisarily the whole thing. I believe my system is 32bit. I dont need 4GB right now for what i do. It was good though that you mentioned this for those that might not understand.
The way i understand it I could probably leave the Hynix ram that is in here and add the 2GB and have even more, But I want all the same make, so i will take the Hynix out and put in all PNY, im trusting the PNY because I have had it before and from my experience have had no problems with it. It seems to get good reviews to.
