Problem games and RAM

Okay, there is a problem with my RAM I think...
(I have 2gb of ram)
I tried to play web game, I noticed it was getting slow and it happens every time I try to play. I decided to ask for help here.

I am not sure if RAM is the problem, but while running the game used RAM is very high, and the games does not run smoothly...

used RAM before running the game:

used RAM while running the game:

used RAM after closing the game:

Well, it is only a flash web game and it uses A LOT of ram...I don't know what to do.
Please help!
I bought this laptop 5 months ago! I don't want to buy another one soon...

Win 7 64 bit needs a minimum of 2 gigs of ram before you start playing any game. If you dont plan to increase yours win 7 32 bit might be more suitable. It only requires 1 gig

Are you serious? I still don't understand, even if it is win 7, why a flash game on the web will use that much ram...?

Windows 7 x64 needs at least 2GB for the system itself. Programs and games will require more RAM. Just add more RAM

Modern Operating systems need to meet modern requirements to support your graphics for one thing.

Most come with 8 gigs now and some as much as 192. This isnt XP any more

In addition to whats already been mentioned, the x64 OS simply has more overhead to deal with.
For example, It must be able to run native 32bit apps in a 64bit enviroment.
Generally, those who are using the x64 system, do so because they have 4GB of RAM or more, or have a need for 64bit appications (which typically require more memory as well)

32bit has less overhead, and is good for 4GB or lower of RAM.

If you have less than 4GB of RAM, you are better off staying with 32bit.
Especially if you do not have or use applications that are native 64bit.

Next time you are running slow, bring up the Resource Monitor > Memory tab. There on the bottom right you have a graph which shows you the Hard Page Faults. If there is a lot of activity, it would explain why the system is slowing down. And in the list on the top of that page you can see which process(es) create the Page Faults.

And I agree with the others - 2GB of RAM is really borderline.
