So I noticed something funny under Vista yesterday...
This may be somehwhat difficult to explain and I hope I can explain it ok...
The last rig I had is very similar to my current one, only this time I'm running 4gigs, 2 video cards, and 64-bit Vista.
When I exited out of Supreme Commander I believe, and had IE up and I was downloading a WoW patch (Yes, I took the plunge haha), I noticed under system resources the computer was using 2.11 GB or something.
Now before, when I was running 2gigs of Crucial Ballistix, at the same timings and speed, I don't think I ever saw it reach higher then 1.5GB after exiting out of a game, and having IE up and downloading something. (Yes, I know, Firefox FTW, It's what I use on my laptop, I don't use my gaming rig for internet use really)
Since the extra RAM is there, does windows use the memory more efficiently or what?
I mean, doing two similar things, on two similar systems, but it takes up more memory on the 4GB system then the 2GB? Is that weird at all? I mean I'm glad to see it using as much as it can, but I guess I'm just curious how Vista 64-bit uses RAM and how efficiently. Anyone know much about it?
