Windows 7: increased memory usage with added memory - why?

05 Nov 2011   #11

Win 7 HP 64-bit

Okay update! - I just changed to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) native resolution on my desktop and its moving fast again. It's just a slight bit blurry feeling on the monitor..

Good - best to run at native resolution. If it's small, simply increase the size to 125 or 150% in the display panel.
