A good way to test this was using the memory tweak in Quake 2 or Quake 3 so the game would allocate more memory, only issue was anything over 512MB would give you an error, insufficent memory allocation failed.

You can use the reg tweak though which worked fine. I said screw it and moved to Windows 2000 Professional and never had an issue again with memory.
