A huge part of that 2.26GB is just reserved because it's available. It's not actually used by the system.


Oh? I had no idea. I just figured it was high because I do leave a ton of crap running in the background.

I am using over 5 gigs of RAM right now with only one game open, a browser,skype and MAME among a few smaller other things. I say go for at least 12 gigs of RAM unless you don't heavily multitask like I do.

i dont multitask, so 9 gigs of ddr3 is enough not 64 gigs.

8GB is more than enough for any game out today. I have 16GB because it's really cheap and it makes me feel special, also I do 3d design sometimes.
