And it's never 'just Windows'.
Antivirus, Steam client. CCC, a host of other stuff.

Measure it in your system. Open Task Manager and look at Processes.

Win 7 x86 doesn't leave you with much ram left for gaming. in all honesty stick with Win 7 x64 that way you can always add more ram later on to enhance your gaming experience.
