Large Address Aware Skyrim

This (not particularly recent) thread on the techPowerUp! Forums offers an application and instructions on how to systems with 3GB of RAM or more to use more memory for Large Address Aware applications. Thanks GamesDot.org, where they note its applicability to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

The real question is why you would have 12GB of RAM in the first place. Blame consoles or blame slowing computing progression, but RAM usage has been peaked for a while now. 4GB is still more than enough for most anything, doubly so for games.

Because I don't just game. Because Windows 7 caches stuff in memory which makes the whole system much snappier. Because I leave stuff open in the background while I game and having more than 4 GB of RAM means that I can do that without even thinking about it.

4 GB is probably plenty for pure gaming if you're careful about what you leave running, but it's not like this stuff is expensive right now. $50 will get you 8 GB of competent memory.

I just got 16GB of memory for $80 for my desktop upgrade (Core i7-2600K, 16GB DDR3-1600, GeForce 560Ti)... it's so cheap you might as well err on the side of overkill.
