You will need to install a video card in order to use all of your memory for windows since the remaining memory now is being used for your graphics/video processing. If you if you use any kind of graphics like in games, photo or video processing, or any other graphics or video intensive programs, you will realize an substantial performance improvement on your system as long as you get a decent video card appropriate to your usage.

I doubt you could ever use it fully. OS and complete motherboard have to support that and no OS does. You might get close but there is still some reserved memory.

Worse than that is you installed 64bit. It sucks up a gig by it's self. Microsoft even claims that to be true on their web pages.

Windows 7 64bit runs fast fine on 4GB RAM without any problems, I would though recommend 8GB or more for those using Photoshop, AutoCad, Video editing software, and similar programs that use a lot of memory.

Check your BIOS settings for your onboard video, it may still be running and reserving memory. Look for a setting to turn it off or at least activate only if the PCIe card is not installed.
