Default Ram and CPU USage

I just got a new Logitech G15 Keyboard which displays Ram and CPu Usage. When i play games ( morrowind ) my cpu is at 100% and my ram starts in the 50's and starts increasing. Is this normal?

Yes sir this is normal, because you are playing a game and it requires more power from your computer, your cpu has to work harder to run the game and the game uses ram to run. Hope I helped

just about every game made in the past 5 years will make your CPU go to 100%

That seems normal
And for the ram, it depends how much you have. And what your using.

100% CPU useage on a game... I think its bottlenecking now there. Somthing else is going on at 100% you got a 3200 what game is you playing. I play CS and sure my PCU goes to about 50 or 60 maybe 80% on intesive times at the most.
