Ram usage on win7

I Downloaded windows Windows 7 and i like it but it use so much of the ram

I have 2 Gb of ram and i only use msn, AVG antivirus program and the internet and it use 740 mb of the ram

this is 32-bit

if i use Windows vista ultimate 64-bit and use the same program then i use about 700-800 mb of the ram..

ram usage

Dont worry about your English its fine. there are a couple of things to consider. XP is not supprted by M$ anymore and doesn't have current technology. Win 7 will be around for a couple of years and has more updated drivers and technology.

Is it impossible to upgrade the ram? Or is the computer just slow? Win 7 can run in 512 Mb of ram (slowly) and so can xp. I dont understand why win using 800 Mb is a major problem.

Let me know

Windows 7 can use much less than vista (512mb & below), but if its there it will utilize it, unlike XP

try & run vista on 512mb, you'll soon realize how much more efficient Windows 7 is.

Memory on boot is one thing that's about the same, Its when you start using a few different programs is where Windows 7 shines. And now that we are seeing people updating some things we will see a much better performing apps in Win 7 over Vista. To prove what I'm saying open Adobe's Photoshop in Vista then open it in Windows 7 you will see how 7 does better at memory usage over Vista.

Also if you are looking to have more ram to your usage grab a 2gig flash drive and use the ReadyBoost app in control panel to help you out.
