More RAM for a program RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have heard that Microsoft Windows gives 2 GB of RAM to programs and 2 GB to windows background operations. If you want more RAM for your programs you need to use the so called "/3" switch to make your computer give 3GB to programs and 1GB for windows background operations. I want to know if this is true and if it is, then why does a motherboard allow you to install more then 4GB of RAM on you PC because the rest will just do nothing and if its not true how do I allocate more RAM to programs or a sir-tan program?
