It may be counter-intuitive to those of us who grew up when computers had a lot less RAM, but high RAM usage is good!

I just read your article at HTG on Why Windows Can’t See All Your RAM. I am running XP Pro SP3 32 bit. I don't seem to be able to find where to see how my RAM is being allocated. Is it possible on my system?
When I assembled this SATA build, I was told there was no way 32 bit OS would see all 4GB of RAM I had installed, your article suggests I could, except if there is allocation to another device. Under System properties 2.75GB RAM is showing. I have 4GB installed on a Gigabyte MA780G-UD3H. I'd love to find out if I am using maximum of my RAM. Also, XP Pro can't recognize my SATA HDD as SATA. Can you point me to a tutorial on how to get full benefit of the SATA HDD? TIA. Hope you had a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!

- I'm actually not sure about that; I haven't used XP in a long time. You can certainly compare the amount reported in your BIOS to the amount shown in the operating system.Dec 30, 2012
