hmmm

that's weird, windows complains to me that it wants to shut down X Program quite often
because it's running low on memory

but then I usually have a lot of tabs open.....

usually have firefox, windows messenger, windows media player, eset smart security, O&O defrag, adaware and random game (these are just the ones I can see in the taskbar.... no telling what else there is going on the the background)

quick screenie using 5+ GB w/o any games

Did you add the RAM recently?

Because if you did, there in lies your problem.... at first it will hog most of it, then when it adapts to what you have, I forget the feature name (its Superfetch I believe)

That's firefox (5 tabs), songbird, googletalk, AVG in the background and Crysis warhead. I think you have a serious memory leak somewhere.

I'm only using 1.5gb of RAM until I get my PI Blacks, with a 2gb page file and aero activated. Everything's moving pretty nicely, my CPU is helping out a lot.

Then again, I haven't full blown crazy tested it yet. I'm just folding right now, but earlier it was running like a dream.

I'm thinking he has something in the background that is hogging memory. Maybe a virus scan or something. He shouldn't be getting ram usage that high.
