If you are using the 32 bit version of vista it will not show the full amount of ram, the same as XP, as it uses parts of the ram for other things.
To show the full amount you need a 64bit operating system.

sorry didn't notice the vista forum, and thanks alan2273 I am on 32bit so i'll not bother about it any more
