@Bazooka, is the hardware even 64 bit capable?

I know quiet well you lose RAM for installing cards but he's lost twice as much as he should have; it doesn't make sense to me.
No, if he only had 3GB available to begin with, he would definitely be in the 2's. He added 704MB to his video ram.
But, that doesn't even always matter, different boards handle the address spaces differently. Some take off more than you add, some less. It's a total crap shoot.
Unless you have the same setup, yours cannot apply.
