Default Supported Memory

How much ram does Vista Business support? My computer supports 4gb but I think because Business is 32 bit it only supports like 3 gb or something like that, someone prove me wrong so I can upgrade lol. (Vista is stealing my gaming ram lol)

only 64 bit operating systems can utilize 4gb of memory.

Doesnt matter if its home/business/ultimate, if its still the 32bit version it is only going to see 3-3.5gb of the memory. BTW i think everything but the "basic" versions should have both 32 and 64 bit versions. You can use the same key if you have a disk with 64 bit.
Nothing to see here.
