RAM limitations are... interesting. It is a combination of both hardware and Operating System. For example you can have a motherboard that can access upward to 128GB of RAM, but an OS that can can only index 16 GB max including Video RAM (Win7 Standard) so you're still capped to below 16GB as a result as any more you put in just isn't accessed. And that doesn't even BEGIN to cover types, speeds and latency limitations. Buying RAM can be the most confusing part about upgrading a rig.
