Can I have 8G Ram with the 9500 quad core processor. Vista recognizes that it is there, but I have been told the processor can only work with 4G.

no, that's not true. If you're running Vista 64 bit it's all good. If you're running 32 bit Vista it might recognise the full 8 gig but it will not use more than 3.5 or so.

As far as I know all Phenoms can address something like 128 GB.. or was it 64, don't remember. It's a lot more than 8GB at least, that I know for sure

It's the OS and motherboard that sets the limit really.
