    I currently have an Asus P5AD2-E Premium motherboard with 4GB of RAM
    installed (4 x 1GB non-ECC DIMMS). My BIOS only shows 3.2GB because of
    memory allocation issues (motherboard doesn't support remapping) even though
    it said it would support 4GB. I'm running Windows Vista x64 so my OS isn't
    the problem. I want to get a new motherboard that will allow me to utilize
    all 4GB of 1GB DIMMS and my Pentium 4 670 processor. I'm looking at the P965
    and G965 chipset as I don't need the 975X...processor is too slow and I'm not
    a gamer. I don't want to spend a lot of money either. I'll upgrade my
    processor and memory next year when quad-core technology becomes mainstream.
    Can someone tell me which 965 motherboards out there will let me use all 4GB
    on Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit? Please help ASAP!

    ??? I might be wrong ... but...
    not showing the full size of RAM does not necessary mean yet,
    that it doesn't utilize it in full or is not supporting the entire
    4GB RAM.

    You might be right. While my BIOS and Windows itself aren't showing 4096 MB
    of memory, another utility I have shows that I do have 4 x 1024MB modules
    installed. I'm not sure what to believe...haha.
