For questions about using Classic.

No, you really can't use the last 500mb/1gb of RAM in a 32 bit system - the actual memory addresses are assigned to VRAM, other system devices, etc. so any physical RAM you install beyond this point will go completely unused.

Yeah it's a limitation of 32 bit architechture. When I said it uses it as a ram drive, I meant it will allocate it to things like virtual memory, vram, and system cache. It still "uses" it, but Windows doesn't "use" it.

Also, I have experienced lots of crashes with opening cap files on my big rig, but only when SLI is enabled. If I turn SLI off, it will open without a hitch. Weird.
