windows 32 can only address 3.5gb of RAM so if you want to see all of it then get windows 64bit
lower Ram timings are better - just make sure theyre stable"Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons."

hmm, but isnt there an option like on the asus mother boards that allows the computer to actually see and use the 4gb rather than the 3.5 gb

windows 32bit can see 4gigs! but then you subtract the momory of your graphics card, controller cards etc... that gives you the 3.25-3.5 gigs that most people get
