Default how much ram can vista support?

Depends on which OS type you use. X86 is limited to 4gb, where as x64 is much higher. I can't remember off hand though...
I'll go look it up...
looks like 16 TB is the limit on x64. So if you have the hardware, you can use as much as you want, but if you don't, then your still limited to 4 GB.
