Default Physical memory under Windows Task Manager

I have a total of 4 gigs of memory installed(2x2). When I go to Windows Task Manager, under the performance tab, it shows I have less than 20 free, 3000 is cached and 4000 total. Is this right? Why is it only showing 20mb free when I have 4 gigs?

I'm not sure if this is in the right place, if not could somebody move it.

Antec 1200
Intel Core i7 920@2.7ghz
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
Noctua NH-D14
ATI Radeon HD5870
Corsair 6gb DDR3 1600
Corsair 850HX PSU
OCZ Vertex 2 120gb SSD
WD Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500gb
Windows 7 Pro 64bit

Because the rest is cached which makes it ready to go.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
