Hello all, I'm not sure this is a brilliant question, or if It's even in the right place. I have a compaq 5800 series hp. i have upgraded it to windows 7 PRO. I have 8 gigs of ram installed. I'm having some problems with slowness, lag, and everything else in after effects. I have tried everything else. Basically it's boiled down to me having to get more ram. So, my question. If I have an OS that supports more ram would my board still read it? Becuase from what I'm gathering this motherboard only supports a maximum of 8 Gigs but I wasn't sure if that was just because of the original OS or because it simply doesn't support more than that.
