Slightly different memory question

	I have a Inspiron 1525 with 4GB of Ram and I noticed through system 
monitor that the 32-bit Ubuntu sees 3.5GB of that.  I know my video card 
uses 256MB, so does this mean that I am using a total of 3.75GB or is 
that 256MB included in the 3.5GB listed?

	This question is important to me as I am trying to decide if I should 
move to a 64-bit system or not.  Losing 500MB bugs me a little more than 
loosing 256MB.
