I just completely restored my computer with Windows 10 so I would have a fresh computer for my new graphics card coming today and my new cpu coming tomorrow. Well while the computer is idling, in task manager it shows 98-100% Ram usage. Again the computer is completely fresh. I have 16Gb of GDDR4 ram I am posting a picture of the processes running and in total there's not even 1gb of ram but somehow it's using 98%? What's the problem?

Looks like one of your drivers has a memory leak (which don't show up in task manager). Read and follow instructions here to troubleshoot:

If that's just too technical, you can alternatively start uninstalling drivers (one at a time) and rebooting after each, until you see the problem resolve (then you'll know which driver is the culprit).
