windows 7 has ablity to see unlimited amount of ram now.
as much as you can put on the motherboard is what you can use.
in reguard to your issue.
i am thinking the ram is not the memory it is using up. but it is instead using the virtual ram. go in to the properties of the my computer icon and find how to adjust the virt memory / page file. what ever its called in win 7 now. you might just be having the trouble that windows can't adjust the virt memory fast enough its self. so making the amount save on the hd larger your self might fix it. try making 2000 min. and 2005 max. see if that works. you of course need to have that much free space on the hard drive.. if you are using multiple hd's in your system set up smaller swap files on each hd. this will make the total size over the amount needed by having it on all the hd's and it also allows the windows system to gather the song file in the hd's swap file before it sends it to the player on the main hd. helping cut back on lag time.
if there is any on your faster win 7.
