Use Resource Monitor to see what your ram is doing.
Start Orb and type in resmon. Look for something like this.-capture.pn-memory-snippet.png

2.17 is what is being used, not what is available.

Nothing, that's all the programs you are currently running require. If you run more concurrent programs or use programs that require large amounts of RAM then that number will go up.

You probably don't need more than 4GB of RAM. Most people don't.
