My computer is fairly basic, but it works for my needs.

I know it's a bit too late to add this after such a long while, but I have not verified my hardware here.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200S (2.33 GHz)
300 GB SATA HDD
8 GB DDR3 RAM @ 1333 MHz
ATI Radeon 5570 1 GB GDDR3
Mac OS X 10.8.3/Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit

It's a heavily modified eMachines office PC. The OS X installation is a hack I have concocted as opposed to buying an overpriced (Mac)computer with picky hardware.

Nice! I have an Emachines also, and the only modifications I put in there were a bigger hard drive (last one crashed), better video card, and the PSU to go along with the video card. I've always thought it would be interesting to have a hackintosh though.

Yes I also have removed the original PSU and installed on old but trustworthy PSU from an older computer. The Hackintosh scene on the system is great by the way Smile

Windows 8 32 bit leaves you with 2.99gb? Wow. Razz that sucks. At least xp left you with 3.4 gigs

Yes, it sux to the max. Razz I mean, it's a good OS, but I use it like Win 7, I mainly just use the desktop. I mean, I originally just wanted Win 7, but it was when they were selling Win 8 for like $20, so I just went with that.

Is there any thing I could do to my computer to get a little RAM back?

If your video card is using any of it, setting the video memory to be lower or getting a proprietary card could get you a few hundreg megabytes back. That's usually only the case with integrated graphics though. If you already have a card, there's not much you can really do without reinstalling with 64 bit. (gotta love microsoft Razz )

LOL, yup, I knew I had been screwed with the 32-but. But wouldn't the 64-bit yield even less usable RAM?

64 bit allows the software to address RAM that requires an address longer than 32 bits. It so turns out that the maximum amount of ram that can be mapped out and addressed with 32 bits is 4GB. Windows reserves some of this for video RAM and stuff like that (unfortunately) and that leaves you with about 3GB.

As far as whether using 64 bit would give you more usable RAM, I'm not sure, since you have 4 GB of ram. I do know that for windows to reserve 1 GB of ram for other purposes is a bit strange, but then again, video memory counts for the 4gb as well.

As far as I know, with a 4gb rig, reinstalling with 64 bit should give you at least some extra usable RAM, but I'm not positive.

Yeah, I knew about the 4 gig limit with x86 systems. Problem is, I don't think I could the 64-bit version for Windows 8, or at least not so cheap anymore, which rules that out.

In fact, I don't even think they gave me a choice when I downloaded it. What crookery. Razz

I will not upgrade to the newer operating systems, they are too "mobile" for my stationary desktop Hackintosh. Windows 8 totally ruined any chance of me upgrading anything.

Due to technical limitations, it is not possible to upgrade from a 32 bit operating system to a 64 bit operating system. Unfortunately, reinstalling fresh is the only way to go from 32 bit to 64 bit, which I think is a bit unfair considering that 32 bit is getting outdated Razz

Agreed. I don't like the whole mobile feel that much either. I found a 90 day trial and played with it, and needless to say, it didn't feel right at all. i think I'm sticking with Windows 7, at least for a while.

The inner workings of Windows 8 seem to be streamlined so it runs smoother for me. And startup only takes about 10 seconds, that took about 30 on 7, even with an SSD.

I don't find myself using metro apps or the start screen in general very often though Razz

All that said I don't really like it any more than I do 7, it's just a matter of preference for me and I don't want to bother reverting to 7 at this point.

New laptop. It's an ASUS K55N-DS81, and it works well so far.

1.9GHz AMD A8-4500M APU (CPU + GPU) Quad-Core
500GB 5400RPM SATA HDD
4GB DDR3 RAM
AMD Radeon HD 7640G with 512MB graphics RAM
Windows 8 (as long as the cloud apps don't get in the way, I'm OK with Win8)

Not bad at all for a laptop. The quad core looks nice.
