    Memory probs on P5B Deluxe

    I have an Asus P5B deluxe mobo with 4x1GB of RAM. For some reason, windows only shows 3GB of ram.

    I was wondering, since soundstorm is left out of the nForce4 chipset, is there any reason to go for the nForce4 instead of the (cheaper) KT890? I am talking about the regular nForce4, not the SLI one.
