I just finished building my PC :D however when I checked my computers properties it says that I only have 3.99 our of 8 gigabytes able to be used, my question is why is that?

64


Absolutely sure of that? Because it seems like the exact thing that would be present with a 32-bit OS.

So the PC is telling you that you have 8GB but are only able to use 3.99 correct?

Would it show up as the TC's described it, though? Seems like a software issue, not a hardware one.

Suppose it's possible.
