Sad to know that...
Is there any way for me to use the whole 4Gb then? :'(

You could use a 64bit OS. :)
Windows Seven would be a good choice. ;)

Thanks guys, I did find a site that showed results of Readyboost + 4gb ram worked faster but slower in some cases. (But I deleted my history =P)

What do you mean does not give memory address? I have 4gb ram +1gb GFX card which is 5gb, does that slow down anything?

And I think I'll stick with vista, I'd rather stay with it than doing stuff I'm not sure on.

It does not slow, but, probably, you're using 3Gb + video card 1Gb...

Memory, like your hard disk has to be addressed to be able to find items on it. So for every bit of memory it has to be able to have a corresponding address allocated so that applications can find what they have stored in memory in order to be able to use it.

This doesn't slow anything down, without it nothing would work, real slow, dead effectively.
