[WindowsEdge] Windows Se7en Gets A Confirmed 2010 Launch Date - Page 3

post #21 of 51
Exactly. Why else do we all have Gigabytes of ram in our computers, if people complain that their OS is actually using the ram you have installed..??

I recently installed 8gb of ram in my computer, running 64bit Vista Ult. And after i start using my computer, i have about 4-5gb's of ram being used at any one time. So there is always that other few gigs that can be used for whatever. Vista is also more intelligent in allocating memory where it will be best used, over XP...

I would be pissed if after i dropped 300 bucks on 8 gigs of ram, vista only utilized 1-2 gigs at any one time...

I'd like to hear the reasons why people don't like their ram being used for what it was intended to be used for... I don't quite get that point... Maybe I'm wrong, who knows...

well for one 8 gigs is a lot of ram, the standard is still 2 gigs IMO, therfore using 1 gig of that ram takes up a lot of the free space, only leaving 1 gig for other stuff, when 8 gigs becomes the norm, it'll be different, but for now its not


Edit: im using 55% of 2 gig right now w/ only firefox and minimal programs running

I'm using 890MB of my 2GB (Not counting the cache stuff.), with Firefox, Taskman, TeamSpeak 2, WLM, xFire, and Windows Sidebar. I have also seen as low as 480MB being used with all these programs.

I get annoyed because since I've installed Vista, my 2GB of RAM is no longer enough to run Battlefield 2 without stuttering. I know this is largely a problem with BF2 as well but I had no problems with it under XP. Although my computer is pretty far from state of the art, it should have no problem with an older game like BF2.

You must be running quite a bit of other programs in the background then, or your CPU is the problem. Pretty much everyone else out there with a decent GPU, and 2GB of RAM with Vista can run BF2 without shuttering, including me.

Vista uses 80% of my 1gb of ram. I dont care so much about it using all my ram, i care more about the extra processes running that use all my frickin processing power.

I get so pissed when im trying to browse files in windows explorer and it is so laggy because my processor is at 100%. That is so annoying, i understand that it is trying to "superfetch" but that should never take noticeable performance away from what the actual user is trying to do.

I am in no way bashing vista. I like vista and i realize that i am running outdated hardware. BUT, vista should be smart enough to realize that it shouldnt be using 100% of my processor while im trying do other tasks.

Thats what Microsoft said if i recall, however they can never prove it and we can never disprove it legally so... yeah were at their mercy to lie. But i do believe them just wanted to point that out.

I'm running Xfire, CCC, my Razer drivers and nothing else (except for the rare occasion when I forget to exit out of STEAM before starting the game) and have serious issues with stuttering. The CPU might not be the fastest but it is running stable at 2.5 GhZ and never had problems in XP. It is a frustrating problem because even though all of my other games run really well, BF2 (or more specifically POE2) is what I like to play online.

It should be clear that other than this one issue, I love Vista. I wouldn't want to go back to XP for pretty much anything. It is just a bit of a pain that I've had this problem and have had to all but stop playing BF2.

Have you installed your chip-set drivers? That could be the problem, it was for me before I did.
