Windows 7: Windows 7 Ram usage???

Windows 7 Ram usage???

I was wondering what everybody else was getting in their ram usage for windows 7. Im getting 1.08 RAM in use with nothing running. This seems like a lot doesnt it? I think Vista 32 bit uses about the same for me. Its important to note that i have installed a few apps and all my hardware drivers too.

Im also running the 64 bit version if thats important.

So you're saying Windows 7 x64 uses the same memory as Vista x86. Hmm.

DaRonRon,

Win 7 uses less RAM then all previous versions of windows.
This is done mainly by not turning on system programs until they are needed.

ok. I'm currently using 48% of 4 GB.
I'm playing some music through Winamp, browsing this forum, running core temp and EVGA precision plus Avast in the background.
So that's just under 2 GB.
Seems a lot and I think it's not much better that Vista 64 in this respect.

best wishes, John

ps I'm on Windows 7 7100 x64

And the use of wddm 1.1 drivers when you have more than one window open etc.

Ah. Do you think I should be worried about this?

I just looked in Task manager under performance and it tells me I'm using 1.92 GB running 66 processes.

Cheers, John
