  1. Quick question. I have 64bit Win7 Home with 16GB of ram and a 2GB video card.

    I know "Home" is limited to addressing only 16GB of memory and I was wondering if that includes the Vram on my vid card?

    Just wondering if I need to upgrade to Pro (not moving to "10") to access all of my ram? Is some of my memory going to waste?

    Did a little research. The consensus appears to be that it doesn't. Different memory is addressed by different hardware (eg: CPU cache also does not count against ram limit.)
