O/S= Windows 7 64bit builders

I'm not sure if there is something wrong w/ my memory, if you take a look at the pics, I have almost 1.5gigs used up in cache, is that normal? So my free memory only ends up being 1.2gigs it seems on average is this normal?

I plan on doing memtest tonight for over 5hours; do I test the free, available, or only the cache? The manual said not to test the full memory, not sure what that meant.

Yes that is normal - Vista used to do the same, but windows 7 is better at managing extra memory.

Put your system under load with several applications running and Windows will reallocate the RAM used for cache.
