    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    This processor does support physical address extensions (pae flag), so your OS can support more than 4GB of RAM, but no program can address any more than that, unless it is one of the models that are 64-bit capable. Which depends upon the processor model ID. Here is a link to the Intel Pentium 4 data page: IntelŪ PentiumŪ 4 Processor Family
    Note that some of the 2.93GHz P4 models are 32-bit (with PAE) and others are fully 64-bit. None of the data provided so far says for sure. If you boot into the system BIOS, that information should be available for viewing. What you need is the actual CPU model number, such as 515/515J, 516, 517, etc.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    I would look at the model number but i ran out of thermal compound so i cannot safely check right now.
