VISTA 64 using 70% of memory of the bat?!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
VISTA 64 using 70% of memory of the bat?! just installed windows vista 64 to take advantage of my raid. everything is all good but it uses 70 percent of my ram and it seems that my vista is not taking advantage of dual core since when i go to the task menu it shows the graph for the cpu but the movement of the graph is identical.

dude, the 70% is because of superfetch, if you notice when you open something it doesn't go up much. but 2 gb is vista's sweet spot for ram

and it does take advantage of dual core... i dont see how you think its not

well you have one gig of ram..vista uses about 700 when you first install it..i tweaked vista quite a bit now it only uses aprox 500ish..

try shutting down useless services like superfetch

It caches ALOT if the RAM is not in use. As soon as an application needs that RAm the OS frees it up.

I found the Side bar actually made my sys unstable at max OC lol...I disable everytning until it is as much like XP as possible...then again I'm a tard like that.

Did not disable the fetch though...that actually seems to make sense.

I don't know how you expect it to "use" your CPU... Other than being 64 bit of course.

And if you can afford Vista 64 bit, you can afford 2gigs of ram imo It's fairly cheap to get 2gigs now a days.

I wasnt supposed to go vista, I just got so sick of trying to set up raid 0, someone told me vista is hassle free so i suddenly made a jump. So far everythings alright i think i just need to get more ram. :| For the mean time what can i do to minimize the ram usage? Disable super fetch? whatelse ?
