Intel i7 windows 7 64bit using too much ram

Vista/Win7 aggressively pre-cache data from the HD to help speed things up. This cache will not interfere with other programs as Windows will give it up instantly.

This is what I'm guessing is going on. You'd have to check system resources to make sure it's the cache and not something else.

I'm in vista 64bit right now, all I've got open is IE, Itunes, CPUZ, K10stat, Windows Live Messenger, and Steam. I'm using 2.39GB but my computer has been on for days, the longer it's on the more ram it seems to use while idle.
