For the average computer user, you probably don’t fill your head with such things as the max amount of RAM that Windows Vista supports. Especially when it depends on the type of hardware you have and 1 of 6 different version of Windows Vista. So I thought I would share some of my technical expertise to help you while shopping for your next PC.

These are the max amounts of RAM supported by each version of Windows Vista

Windows Vista Ultimate 4 GB Limit in 32-bit Windows – 128 GB Limit in 64-bit Windows
Windows Vista Enterprise 4 GB Limit in 32-bit Windows – 128 GB Limit in 64-bit Windows
Windows Vista Business 4 GB Limit in 32-bit Windows – 128 GB Limit in 64-bit Windows
Windows Vista Home Premium 4 GB Limit in 32-bit Windows – 16 GB Limit in 64-bit Windows
Windows Vista Home Basic
4 GB Limit in 32-bit Windows – 8 GB Limit in 64-bit Windows
Windows Vista Starter 1 GB Limit in 32-bit Windows – Not applicable

So now you know the memory limits for each version of Windows Vista.
