Actually my elder brother says the memory usage doesn't matter.... it is only the figures that satisfy u, else windows vista and 7 are built in such a way that they utilize max ur resource to work better....
See the latest with F-Secure and other progs...
Only thing I fear I should not get warning from the admin as I'm posting too many Screen shots...

Thanks, Seriously apart from the figures only to satisfy do u really feel the more ram usage is hogging ur sys resources... I say No, it only allocates ur free ram to perform something but what, I don't know??? Now u should answer this...

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 7127
 
 

Hello guys. Im glad to see Win7 uses the RAM more "on the fly" than Vista (both x64). By that i mean that Vista, after two or three days without reboot wold just stuck in 1,8gb, for example. In Win7 i notice that the more apps and stuff i close, the more ram gets free, responding almost instantly. So, the max i´ve seen it reach (in full) was like 2,5gb; and the minimum i´ve seen was around 750/800mb. All in Ultimate x64.

Cheers.

I'm new here,

While running Windows 7 RC 7100 and 7127, I was able to maintain an average RAM usage of 600MB and sometimes even below 500MB on a 2.5GB laptop. But of course, I disabled many services I didn't need and tweaked the OS using common sense. I maintained that usage % with Firefox 3, AIM 6.9, Playlist.com playing music, and general web browsing. Pretty impressive as I can only maintain 1.56GB of usage on Vista SP2 x64 doing the same thing, unless I use IObit Game Booster for game playing then it drops dramatically to 789MB of usage.

superfetch does a good job in windows 7 of allocating ram. in the end it doesnt really matter how much its using, it matters whether everything is responsive and quick which it is. my understanding is that the more ram you have, the more superfetch caches ram.

about 800mb of 4GB ram with firefox 5 tabs, tweaks services 26 processes, no start-up programs running in background, stable, snappier and responsiveness.

running from clean install 7201 x64.

Win 7 wins ! Vista loser !

Just my 2 cents.

Mine's at 846mb on 7201x64 with 2GB total. Only running Avast, Live Messenger (no windows open), and Chrome (13 tabs). The former two are the only startup entries I have.
