32 and 64 bit programs

  AL47 16:53 06 Mar 2010

i have windows 7 64 and only a few 64 bit programs

i also have 6gb of ram in my computer

32 bit os only sees the first 3.25GB of ram so im assuming 32 bit programs can only use this much?

also, can 32bit programs only use the first 3.25 GB of ram out of my 6, or can each one see up to 3.25GB anywhere across the 6?
-ie, can 2 32bit programs both use 2GB of ram [toptal 4GB]
-or will both have to share the first 3.25GB only?

just curious
