Is this Possible?

Recommended Posts

When I built my system I over did the memory and built it with 4gig of ram. Currently I am running XP pro but my Vista Ultimate will arrive today. Windows XP in control panel shows system memory as 2.5 gig. If Vista 32bit address the same way it should show the same. My question is it possible to create a ram drive before Vista loads and place the swap file on the 1.5gig that Windows can't address? Sorry if this was asked before.

Thank in Advance!!!

vista 32 bit will recogonize the full 4 gig of memory, though if you can it would be better used if you were on a 64-bit system

my current build specs are as follows,

Case: Thermaltake Armor

(with 250mm side fan)

CPU: Intel 6800 Extreme @ 3.3ghz

CPU Cooler: Vigor Gaming Monsoon II

Memory: 4gig OCZ DDR2 PC8500 Plat.

Video: 2 x EVGA 8800GTX in SLI

HD: 4 x WD Caviar SE16 SATA2

(3 internal & 1 external)

DVD 1: Plextor 755SA

DVD 2: HP DVD 840E

PS: Enermax Galaxy 1000 watt

OS: XP Professional / Vista Ultimate

Although my system could handle the 64bit version most of my software wouldn't. I was just wondering if indeed Vista had the same memory mapping issue as XP did, and if it did could I make the ram drive to speed up the system by placing the swap file there instead of on a hard drive.

Thanks again.
