Hi.
I have a question about RAM and WinXP. I know that XP has very bad RAM
management (when I say RAM I mean physical RAM), so it uses just a
half (or so) of avaliable RAM. Since I intend to buy over 2 GB of RAM
(I need lots of memory: 3D+video work), I'm not happy about it, but it
wouldn't be such a problem by it self (I can buy as twice as RAM).
However, I heard that XP can (support up to 4GB, but can) use only 2GB
of physical memory (RAM). Now, I intend to buy dual Opteron system.
That means that each procesor has it's own RAM (HyperTransport aside).
If I give each procesor 2 GB of RAM (4GM total), would it work, or
would XP see it as 4 GB?

Another thing; I heard that Win2K has much better RAM management than
XP. Is it true?
