More about : optimum percentage ram usage damasvara October 27, 2010 8:27:54 AM As low as possible... But anything from 10-70% is normal. Reached 100%, then you'll need upgrade. Are you referring the RAM usage or the amount of RAM to be installed for the PC? mistake October 27, 2010 10:53:59 AM Tnx Damasvara i mean RAM usage. My OS is Core i5,2.26G,3M 4G DDR3 but my usage % with only a firefox & internet connection, not less than 50% also not more than 70% yet is it normal?

Excluding that another 1,6 GB is used for caching. It is no problem really, but it could seem a little to high with 2 GB used with just OS loaded and Firefox running. mistake October 27, 2010 11:55:20 AM Tnx really for ur attention is there anything that i should do? damasvara October 27, 2010 11:59:00 AM You're all good... Only suspect lack of RAM issue if you're having lag issues or temporary freezing, which means you don't have the proper amount of RAM in your system. FYI, my 2GB on XP works like a charm. I assume a 4GB on the 7 will perform even better. mistake October 27, 2010 12:44:02 PM So it seemed RAM capasity is more important than CPU Cache.
