Time to get gobs of memory

Gone are the days when there was a 4GB limit on addressable memory because of the limitations of 32-bit processors. WinXP and Vista both come in 64-bit version which has a theoretical limit of 16,000,000 GB of RAM
"Back when 32-bit CPUs were first released, the first being the 386-series for the x86 architecture, registrable and
accessible memory size increased up to 4GB. While you can plug 4GB into any 32-bit CPU system it will not all be
addressable. Why this is, we will elaborate on later.
Today we are going to give you the low-down on the whys of 4GB memory setups and how you can get beyond the 4GB limit,
which is not hard with today's technology."
