4 GB of RAM on a 32-bit Machine

Below is a page from Microsoft that explains memory management in Vista SP1 on 32-bit machines. As I am in the process of getting the 4th GB of RAM and maxing my system, the article makes an interesting reading.
I have already applied PAE setting with BCEditor but don't know if it is really necessary now. I have AMD64 system with socket F and it should support more than 4GB of addressable space.

The system memory that is reported in the System Information dialog box in Windows Vista is less than you expect if 4 GB of RAM is installed
