your problem with available ram...in vista install
it is simple
you have 4gb ram in your sistem with vista x64
ok, and the vista have XXX MB in your ram ok?
next stop your pc and take 2GB ram from the system, boot and see the difference, also you can try with 1gb and 3bg on system.
this is easy part and can be done in 1 hour. the not so easy part is to compare the memory quantity of vista after 2-3 weeks from a clean install.
you can run some memory monitor to have a clear idea.
I also don't want to add in this dialog the ready bust, the indexing service or the windows Prefetch and SuperFetch. (all that can influence direct the memory available for the application)
for that I say the memory available after vista install is not relevant
