Vista: How to use all my RAM?

Vista: How to use all my RAM?

To make a long story short, I just upgraded my PC with an i7 920 processor and an ASUS P6T motherboard. Things worked out so that moving from 6gb of RAM to 12gb was nearly free - So I did it! Now I have Vista 64-bit with 12gb of ram, tuned up nicely.

"With quite rare exceptions Windows is already making near optimum use of memory. It is just that Task Manager doesn't reveal this, and in many cases it obscures it. If Task Manager seems to show poor use of memory you are probably misinterpreting it.

A ramdisk is almost always a poor use of memory. You will be better off letting Windows manage it as it wills."
