Windows 7: Is my RAM usage high? (Struggling with BSOD)

Is my RAM usage high? (Struggling with BSOD)

Hi, this is my very first post at this forum

I`m struggling a little bit with Photoshop installed on my PC. When i start and closes CS6 before i start gaming my RAM free goes down very much, but when i don`t start CS before i start gaming, nothing happens.

I play MS Flight Simulator X and are struggling with BSOD ingame if CS6 have been runned one or more times after the startup.

Here are my RAM usage... With no Photoshop... Is this good or bad?

With Photoshop running it goes down to 2500 mb free, and my Flightsim needs max 2 gb. Could 500mb be to little for it to work with?

I think your RAM usage is good. According to your screen shot you've got 2717MB cached, 3824MB free, and 6262MB available. Windows 7 is a lot more efficient in allocating RAM compared to XP (and even Vista.)
