Noob question about RAM!

Go to solution Solved by Fasauceome,

the red circle is also including your page file. Windows automatically creates a page file that can use some of your primary storage as memory in case you use over 8GB of ram. It may be slow, but slow memory is better than no memory.

 

you can easily google how to change the size of the page file, if it ever becomes something you need to do.

Hi hello guys, noob question here...

i have 
I5 4460
SSD via Sata Kingston 240gb

1tb in HDD

asus strix 1050 ti

AND 8gb (in 2 sticks 4gb each one)

Honestly i recently play things like LoL, WoW, not much demanding tittles, but i was checking the Task manager this days and i noticed about this; The blue circle indicates my official ram instaled (i think) and whats this about confirmed RAM (Red circle)

I like to know whats this? the difference between this 2 circles 

After a couple of tries of uploading the screenshot of the task manager...

basically the smaller number is your ram available because sometimes the system etc takes up some of the ram the larger number is the total module capacity.

Hope this helps,

Tat would mean that every module have 9gb and only 3 can be used?...
