quick info. built new gaming rig, 4gb of mem, windows 7.

problem. im chillin playing minecraft, and it crashes saying not enough free memory for java to use. so im checking my memory processes with the resource monitor, it says im using 2.2gb out of my 4gb but if i tally up all the processes it says are being ran, i only get 1gb of used memory.

so question is where the hell is this stuff thats using my extra gig of memory?

also when im running minecraft, it says im using 3.5gb of ram. NO other programs are open.

it also looks like java is using 1.5gb of ram purely while running minecraft

What video card are you using and how much ram does it have? Your video card might be running out of ram. If it does it will ask the mother board for the use of it's ram. This will slow you down a lot. I'm not sure if this will show a flag for Java because I have never had the problem.
