comment 3GB RAM Installed and Detected by BIOS, Windows Vista 32bit Only Sees 2GB
"The highest voted answer created after the bounty started with at least 2 upvotes will be automatically accepted." (emphasis mine) That said, you still have a problem if 32-bit Server 2008 doesn't see all 4 GB. If this is a production server, it's something you really should sort out.

comment Is it technically possible to read CD by its scan?
@liori: Thanks. @Blorgbeard: This is getting absurd quickly, isn't it. :-)

comment Is it technically possible to read CD by its scan?
It's actually even higher than that, since CDs are round and the above calculation is for its containing square. Never mind the hole in the middle. Beyond this I'm out of my depth, but I think you'd need an even higher imaging resolution to be able to resolve all the transitions. Wouldn't the Nyquist-Shannon Sampling Theorem come into play here?

comment For Intel cpu , if chipset and motherboard are also from intel then it will give best performance. Is it true?
Either a G45 board or an nVidia based board. To be honest, I'm not sure how much decoding support is available on nVidia chipsets though since they've been running model-number hell for the past year or so.

If you check the specification update available here, you'll see that the G45 chipset is the only one that has full HW decode acceleration for AVC & VC1.

Photoshop does not make extensive use of the GPU. It's primarily used for display operations and zooming, but not for very many manipulations. Adobe TechNote 404898 details exactly what PhotoShop CS4 and CS5 can use a GPU for. The G41 chipset on the MB linked to can also do video decoding for VC1 and AVC, so there's no problem there either.

Intel has traditionally had excellent build quality on its motherboards. Not a lot of options but they've been extremely stable IME. It's been a few years since I've needed to worry about it so I'm not positive that's still the case.

comment Reliable and free remote desktop client and server?
@Joel: On Windows client editions? How so? I've seen the hacks to allow multiple users, but not a shared desktop.

comment Windows 7 recognizing 100% of my RAM some places, not others
Can you post more info about your system? Make and model? What chipset does your system have? AFAIK, most Athlon X2 chipsets should support > 4 GiB of RAM.

This is probably the culprit. If the chipset supports memory addresses beyond 4 GiB (some don't), then there should be an option in the BIOS to control memory remapping.
