What can we do with free ram?

I actually got 8go of ram but I only use 3-4go maximum. I was wondering if there is a way to boost performance of anything with the ram left? For exemple can I use the ram left to boost performance of the CPU or the GPU?

    well, are you using vista or 7, if so it will use the extra ram to cache programs you use so they don't have to be loaded from the hdd
  2. I am using win7 x64.
    So windows will use it for cache automatically? I dont have to set it somewhere?
    Thanks for your fast reply
  3. yup, though it will take quite a few programs to load up 4GB of cache
  4. hehe :P
