    Ok, I didn't read the previous long posts. (I hate reading long posts)
    To confirm my previous post:

    Forget about VRAM, and stuff, the 945 chipset will simply miss the 0.5GB

    Please do not link to people and groups that know less than I do? All I said was correct. You can link the Internet until hell freezes over. It will not change the facts. Sorry bro.

    Not kidding. No 32bit OS (Windows will see 3.8GB) you should reconsider your point.

    Guys, I think you are all trying too hard.

    Did you look at the post I linked you all to. The guy put 4Gb of memory in his system, and it only could make use of 3gb.
    That means if the OP bought 4gb of memory, he will only see 3GB.

    No offense guys, but the VGN-SZ38GP/C only was offered with the nvidia 7400, so whatever the guy in the post said the maximum memory is, it is. Their are no other gpu options, so it must only be able to see 3.0Gb with a 32bit operating system.

    @Andy
    Your document does not contain information regarding the 945GM Chipset.

    Right, I get the point that I wont be able to access the full 4GB and there was a guy on K-TRON's link (with the same system) who could only manage 3GB out of 4GB.

    So does everyone agree that I can still benefit from dual channel despite the fact that not the entire 4GB is acknowledged by the system?

    Many thanks.

    dual channel does offer a performance increase, but that increase may not be noticeable at all in real life. A 2gb memory card can be had for about $30-40, and it will cost about $70 for a 2 x 2gb kit. So if its worth the extra money, than it is. I cant promise that it will be any faster with 4gb than with 3gb.
    A lot of benchmarks are synthetic and show no real life difference.

    Ok, here is the real world deal. I have an SZ260P and I bought 2 x 2gb ram a year ago for $65. I installed both sticks and removed the 1gb ram that was shipped with my laptop. I am running Vista Business 32 bit SP1. My BIOS shows 3.2gb RAM installed. My OS reports 4gb of ram installed. CPUZ reports dual channel 4gb. From reading this thread I think 32 bit memory controller limits the ram to 3.2gb like others have said, despite what Vista OS reports. I know it is all very confusing but my system is faster with the 4gb of ram than it was with 1gb. I have not compared to 3gb but given how cheap ram is I would just go for the 2 x 2gb. Happy Trails.
