Default Re: FreeBSD-amd64 driver ?

Can any of you three confirm this suspicion of mine?
Well, you're right. In fact right now I'm running with 3Gb of RAM (had 2Gb of memory in my laptop and replaced of the DIMM's with a 2Gb DIMM). I didn't buy two 2Gb DIMM because of the problems with i386 and its memory limitations (and because nvdia doesn't work with PAE).

Right now, because of the Nvidia/AMD64 driver, I was about to purchase another 2Gb DIMM. I'll try to it and then report my results with 4Gb of RAM.
