I have recently installed 2GB of Ram to overcome system stability problems; I was working on solid models of castings; swept shapes intersecting features from many directions with fillets to smooth transitions, internal and external detail.
The system is now stable however a memory manager that I have installed shows that the RAM memory usage rarely exceeds a 1GB level mostly staying around 800-900 KB. I dont know if the system is any faster, I believe it is.
My question is; how do you know if the full potential of the 2GB RAM is being used, are there any settings that need to be set to in Windows XP Pro?
Any feedback appreciated. Thanks in advance.
