24GB Memory Windows 7 PRO 64, Usage 60%

I have 24GB Memory installed on my computer , yet my memory usage is 55-60% yet when i check the memory usage in the performance it does not add up to 60% of my memory being used, this is causing me performance issue.

Can anyone give me some clarity why a 24GB system is using so much memory?

My system I7 980, 24GB DDR3 RAM , SSD 500GB, ATI R9 270x

What are you doing that`s causing the cpu go to 32%

Could you also post a shot of resource monitor showing the memory tab.

I'm no expert on this but do understand that there's more to it than simply adding up the total usage shown in the Private Bytes column.

Now it`s saying you`re using 12 GB

How big is your page file ?

Restart the pc and give another shot of RM.

Total paging file size for all drives :24574mb

Wanted to add another 24GB memory to my system, but my X58 motherboard limit is 24Gb.

You seem to be running VMware, any virtual OS running while you took that screenshot? I know VirtualBox doesn't show how much a Virtual OS eats (only shows its own process which is 300-400MB), so maybe VMware behaves the same? Unfortunately, you deleted the process names from your first screenshot (which 1.9GB maybe that).

Try a clean startup and see if memory will jump high Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

I stopped Vmware running 1 vm machine, now memory running at 22% , never thought vmware would eat so much resources..

I feel my system is limited, will upgrading to 64GB ram resolve the issue?
