Ok, quick questions.
Both XP and Vista 32-bit editions will only support 4GB RAM, correct?
But the 64-bit editions will support far more? XP Professional 64-bit, will that one support, say 8GB of RAM? What about Vista Ultimate 64-bit?
I'm using the Acer Aspire E700-UQ660A Minitower, with default hardware.
In short, that's :
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600 2.4GHz with Viiv Technlology
System Chipset: Intel G965 Express
Graphics Card: Ati Radeon X1650
OS: Vista Home Premium
Would the hardware allow more than 4GB of RAM to be installed?
Would it help at all, having "only" a 2.4GHz processor?
Will a 64-bit OS work on this computer?
To summarize, what I'd like to do is:
1. Add more RAM, at least to 4GB but if hardware & OS allow, maybe more for BoB (8GB maybe? :-)
2. Switch back to XP, I don't like Vista to be honest. If XP Professional 64-bit supports >4GB of RAM, and the hardware also would, that'd be the best thing.
Sorry for the quick post, but I'm on a library computer as my new internet connection hasn't "arrived" yet.
If you need some more info, I'll try to reply later today or early tomorrow USA time.
Thanks a million in beforehand to anyone taking the challenge to decode the above gibberish!!!
