I know it is limited still but is it limited to 2 gig or about 2.7 / 3.2?

found this:
Each 32-bit program is assigned a 4 GB virtual
memory address space in the WOW64 subsystem - with no requirement for the OS
which is still running in the 8 TB of virtual memory address space it gets.
So, if your 32-bit program is written to take advantage of >2GB of memory
(using the LARGEMEMORYADDRESSAWARE compiler switch), it will automatically
see a full 4GB.
