Windows Home premium supports a maximum of 16GB of physical memory.

The board you mention can accomodate 32GB physical.

I would go Win 7 Pro 64-bit for a few bucks more.
That can utilize 192GB of physical memory

That's a good point. I didn't think there were many tasks/games that could use that much RAM but it wouldn't hurt for 30 bucks.
