I failed to explain why there is a need for more RAM. The program that runs the virtual pipe organ is called Hauptwerk and when an organ is loaded into the program, all of the sampled sound files are loaded into RAM. I have a sampled organ software program that exceeds 30 GB if it is loaded at its highest resolution which is 24 bit. Also, as most pipe organs are in buildings with long reverberation times, the size of each sample file may be several MBs. Since there are thousands of pipes in these large organs, a lot of RAM is needed just to load them. Also, there is a need to have several GB of RAM left to run Windows, the Hauptwerk program, and any sequencing program such as Sonar X1.
I hope that this information will make it more obvious why I am asking my original question. If I can increase the amount of RAM without having to replace the mobo, then it is certainly a more practical way to move forward.
