XP pro 64bit and any vista 64 bit and any linux 64 bit I would say xp pro 64 or linux would be your best bet and what processor are you thinking of using and most 64bit OSes can handle up to 32GB ram but depending on what you are doing the most you would most likely need is 4-8 for high performace but if you are doing say 3D visual programming 16 is great

How do I switch/upgrade my motherboard from a 32bit to a 64bit please


Having a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system mainly depends upon the operating system that is loaded on your primary hard drive (generally drive C:). However, your motherboard's components, i.e., processor and amount of system RAM, will be a major factor in determining whether you can only run a 32-bit operating system, or upgrade to a 64-bit system.

Asus m3n78-vm ram increase


Well, how much have you got? and are you running a 32 or 64 bit OS? For the Max ram you can fit to your mobo go to the ASUS site and look at the spec for your board. If you have a 32 bit os you cannot use more than 3.7 GB of ram, you can use as much RAM as you can afford or will fit if you have a 64bit OS.

How do i change from 32 bit to 64 bit on a asus p5q se2 motherboard


The only way to Upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit is to buy a 64 bit MOBO and replace it with the 32 bit MOBO.

Specify a suitable board for intel quad core 2.66


Obviously the p5q-vm is a better mobo as it has a faster FSB and supports up to 16G of RAm vs 4G on the p5ql-cm.  If you are looking for a gaming PC then certainly the p5q-vm is the better choice.  With that said, you may also want to consider another video card.  While the 9600GT is a fantastic card, it will soon be on the bottom of the dogpile when it comes to gaming.

Ram Upgrade


Max speed supported for your mobo is: DDR2-533
You will have to buy (4) 1gb sticks (2gb sticks not supported)
To use all four gigs of ram you need a 64 bit os.32 bit only supports 3gb of ram. Hope this helps!
Here is the specs :

ASUS A8M2N-LA (NODUS-GL8E) (DDR2-533MHz) Memory Maximum Memory 4GB Memory Slots 4 (4 banks of 1) non-removable base memory 0MB Machine name: ASUS A8M2N-LA (Nodus-GL8E) Motherboard

RAM utilisation


Can't do it with 32 bit, must install xp64 or vista 64.

Understanding RAM characteristics


Regardless of the speed RAM is nothing more then a container for running programs. Hence the more ram you have the more programs you can run concurrently (at the same time)

Speed has to do with how fast the running programs can be put into and accessed within the RAM.

Hope this helps

It says board can take 4 gig of memory but back slots 2 big


If your MoBo supports 4 Gigs, Vista 32 bit will only utilize approximately 3.48GB, and XP 32 bit will only use 2GB, so unless you are running Vista 64 bit (which will use up to 8GB, if your MoBo will?), the OS isn't going to see but 2 to 3+ depending on which version of windows you're running,

As for the slots being too big, you are probably attempting to install the wrong RAM for your MoBo. Compare the RAM in question with what the MoBo manufacturer says is compatible.

Good luck, and I hope I helped you.
