Have you tried this?

If not, this thread suggests they may already be installed, and how to check.

Sorry if these don't help...I don't need LPs myself, so never played with them.

yeah english swedish who cares i wanna game dx10 thatīs all i guess i wonīt use too many apps either i can use them via xp anyway so

but i had 117gb now approx 78gb free and all iīve installed is crysis and alot of updates man vista really grows fast soo i guess i have to go via xp to delete vista partitiona and use all 232 for vista geez what a monster

also after i got the SP1 installed correct it shows 4gb of ram not 3007mb

but this paging file thing is it safe to tamper with it?

why did you install 32bit?

32bit vista will never use full 4gb of ram, after SP1 install it might show 4gb of ram, but it still will not use it

To be more precise - no 32bit OS can (ever) use full 4GB of RAM, as peripherial devices memory (e.g. GPU RAM) is mapped there, making huge portions of RAM unavailable. With 64bit OS, those memory mappings are moved above 8GB/16GB barrier, but with 32bit they must stay within 4GB basic pool.

This also means that with 256MB low-end GPU there will be 0,5GB more memory available to OS (any 32bit OS) than with 8800GTX-768.

I wonder though how much 9800GX2 will take from RAM when 32bit OS is used - 512MB and/or 1GB RAM?

Still use 512 cause of SLI but since its 2 gpus and pretty much 2 cards, it will probably count as 1GB.

Anyway..

How is the OS going mr GTX?

well seems a tad slow

and i am sorry for not telling ya guys

i run Vista Ultimate 64-BIT that is why i can see all my 4gb in the info

but i guess it is because i canīt tweak it yet

trying to get 3dmark vantage to install but i use xp to dl it then switch to vista to install

but why do i get better speeds form internet in xp than i get in vista?

also how do i turn off UAC? and other resource taking stuff so i get a tad faster vista?

so i can be safe turning off stuff that is
