is it right that windows vista 32 bit will only detect 3 gb of ddr ram or is this a load of bunkum

Tis true. Between 3 and 3.5gb depending on your hardware. click here

I have 4 GB installed in mine and because my graphics card has half GB (512MB) on memory this is deducted from the 4 GB to give me 3.5GB.

The PC still sees 4GB, albeit 3.5GB Ram and half GB of ram from the graphics card.
