win 7 max memory???

Hey guys, is the max physical memory that win 7 supports 4GB? I just got a little upgrade from 3GB to 4GB and if i right-click on Computer and click Properties the installed memory says "4.00 GB (3.25 GB usable)". I'm running 32-bit, plan on upgrading to 64-bit soon. any reason as to why I'm not getting my full 4GB?

Thanks

It's because you're using 32bit right now, 64bit will use all 4gb.
