    Fortunately you can use a real processor with 4GB of RAM as well as an
    IA-64 (if you can find one even!). It is chipset dependant whether RAM
    lost to the PCI window can be made to appear over the 4GB boundary with
    a PAE capable intel ia32 processor (or clone) with an AMD x86-64
    processor (or clone)

    It depends entirely on the chipset quality
