Windows 7: Sudden RAM Loss After PSU & GPU Installation

Sudden RAM Loss After PSU & GPU Installation

I've recently upgraded my GPU and PSU to a GTX 650TI 2GB Boost Superclocked and Seasonic M12II 620W, and noticed a sudden loss in RAM after installing the new hardware. Originally, my PC had 6.00GB of RAM, but when I check the system information, it says that only 4.00GB of RAM are present. Is it possible that the introduction of these components affected my RAM? I'm completely in the dark with this one, any help would be appreciated.

First thought would be to double check that the ram modules haven't been knocked about and are actually seated properly still.

How much RAM does the BIOS show installed?

I checked the motherboard after posting this (which I probably should have done beforehand), and found that one of the sticks was slightly raised. Reaffirming it into the slot solved the problem, but thanks for the help anyways.
