available physical memory is how much memory is free, or how much isnt being used. right now your using .61GB of ram. windows can use all your ram just fine.

also technically a 64-bit OS paired with a motherboard with a full 64 bit address space can handle 16777216 TB of ram...i find that helpful, just in case you have more ram than that.

Vista tends to Allocate a large portion of memory to your video card, for example, my x1950pro has 256 dedicated ram, but when i go to settings it shows it has 1gb.

@xDrive use a program like CPU-Z to tell u how much RAM u really have
