Reporting on the Total Physical Memory installed vs the Memory visible to the OS

Recently I was asked if SCCM could report on the total physical memory installed. No problem there is even a built in report for that, I replied. No the requester explained, on systems with a 32 OS installed those reports only show the max memory the OS can see. So we sit down and go through the Resource Explorer and find that we are collecting the Win32_PhysicalMemory Class from WMI as part of our hardware inventory. A quick little query gets the info for that can be made into a report.
