I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, on the specs in my 'system specs'

How can i make all 4 gb usable?
Did you check the:

System Properties tab=>Advanced tab=>Performances tab=>Advanced tab=>Modify tab.

You can set it to automatic or decide the amount of the swap ram set to 4098....

I've got 4Gb Ram. Mine says 4098 actual and 5997 recommended.

It is set to 4098 as i decide no automatic setting!

Edit:
i have by now set approx 1,5 more at 5997Gb because i've noticed some latency.
Looks it have boosted a little the write cache into the hard drive.

The optimal setting for the pagefile is 1.5x the installed RAM. If you have 8gb or more of memory, you can run 64 bit windows 7 without a pagefile, but I think most people who really know what they're doing would advise against it.

Pure marketing BS, that card isn't anywhere near powerful enough to make use of it. It is a nice step up from your current onboard, but hope you don't plan on any serious gaming with it.
If "serious gaming" includes 1360x768 GTA IV, GRID, NFS, Saints Row, Fallout etc, then yes.
