No further suggestions as your system is now well. Do not look at used RAM as any indicator of performance. It's an incorrect way to do things.

Win 7 makes use of your RAM. You didn't buy it and have it in your machine to sit there and do nothing.
Yea that's extremely true, but it still seems high on idle my vista running all apps on idle held at 850mb

The mistake is in comparing Vista to 7.

7 manages memory far better and you are seeing the result. Enjoy.
