Windows 7: HELP Upgrading!!

04 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7 32-bit & Ubuntu 9.10

Is this my motherboard:
intel 82801G (ICH7 family) Ultra ATA storage controllers - 27DF RAM

If so, how do I find out what the max RAM is that it can support?

Ahh, thanks! So I guess 2.5GB is the max from my motherboard correct? If 2.5GB is my max should I bother upgrading to 64-bit or should I just stick with the 32-Bit of Windows 7 I have? Would I see any major benefits by upgrading to the 64-bit?
