    Hi all:

    I have tried searching and found nothing on this, and although I am sure there is something I am sure my search terms were poor. So if this is discussed already, if someone could just point me in the right direction of the thread I would appreciate it.

    I use my system for media editing and according to the Task Manager, I was maxing out my CPU at 100% a lot of times and the RAM was showing at around 20% usage. I decided to move to 64 bit Windows 7. I have 8 gb of memory in the system now, along with the 64 bit system. However, CPU still is Maxed out at 100% and only 25% of my RAM is being used.

    Is this the way it is supposed to work? I was thinking the RAM would be closer to being maxed out before the CPU. The picture below helps illustrate.


    Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
