As long as your on an 32bit OS, it's impossible to ever use more then 3.25GB of system RAM. The amount of RAM you can use all depends on many things such as the amount of peripherals you have connected to your computer.
I'll link you to a guy from OCZ, as he explains the situation best.

Alright thanks for the advice :whistling:. I'll hold off on upgradin to 64-bit until more applications are designed to run in 64-bit environments. At the moment i'm registering 3327mb of main memory so that should be more than enough for the time being.
