what i meant is are running 64 bit or 32??

if you are running x64 then would see a difference....

Weird.

you are using a IGP (meaning a integrated graphics processor) which means that you dont actually have 2gigs (since you are sharing memory with the IGP and the computer)....

you actually have 1.5 (maybe a little more)

So far my experience with 7 is that it fills up about 25% of available memory, which can rise as the machine is running for a while. On a laptop with 2Gb, 512 Mb are used at boot, an on a big workstation with 8Gb, 2Gb are used. Not sure how to interpret this, as the machines both scream (relative to other windows versions) and in neither case do I ever seem to run short of memory.

I thought it was superfetch filling it up this way, but that's shown separately in resource monitor. The funny thing is that these numbers never seem to change all that much no matter how much I am running or not running.

Open up the resource monitor to get a better idea of how your memory is being used.-mem.jpg

mSeliga,

It's not clear to me what your setup is between yiur system specs and your thread dialog. Your specs say you have 5GB memory and are running an x64 OS, but your thread dialog seems to say you have 2GB memory and are running x86 ...

Do super processor. I don't notice a difference in different RAM clocks.
