The reason Vista is using all that RAM just idling Cryman is because, unlike XP, Vista manages the memory better and assigns it to things that it thinks you will open next etc. XP doesn't do much with all the spare RAM. When you play Crysis. It will stop assigning it for opening apps faster, disable aero and concentrate on on the game.
