Default Different ram readings?

Ok just upgraded pc im going to give basic info i got 2 512mb sticks equaling 1gb of ram and on the first black start up screen it says i got 640 main memory and 1048mb of extended and total. In windows i got 960mb of ram and also in any other program in xp. When i go to bios i get same as start boot screen. Any ideas why im reading either 1048 or 960 and not 1024mb?

It's probably reading 960 in windows because you have 64 megs of shared video memory. As for the 1048, no idea. It must be nice to have a gig of RAM that doesn't cause your system to reboot randomly.
