Looking at that SS and without knowing you would think the wording would explain the usage in the way it portrays, but sadly, it's just badly written. Free RAM isn't really 'free' in the sense, rather it's paged for system processes currently running and paging free RAM to a cache of sorts. To see how much RAM is actually free you have to see what amount has been committed to Windows and other processes which is cached in RAM to what is committed to the counter which reads 'RAM+pagefile'. He has plenty of free RAM for programs that need it and plenty of page file to swap from if memory overruns or needs caching for distance use.
Windows does a decent job managing memory requirements in reality.

Anything is possible but bad RAM would cause other more noticeable errors like memory related BSOD's, programs faulting related to memory errors, execution malfunctions etc...
