This is a question related to my previous question Memory is being appropriated
I'm looking for a new motherboard. I'm going to go with a standard atx instead of a micro so I can go up to 8GB of RAM (4 slots) and no integrated video. My question now is, will I end up having the same problem of system memory being appropriated? Is this just something that has to happen or is it just due to some chipsets?
At work I have a Dell T3500 workstation with 6GB ram and an nVidia Quadro NVS 420. Shared system memory is 2814MB. Windows says that 6GB is installed but doesn't say "X usable".
