i'm just curious to know why suddenly my idle pc is using 70% of my RAM.

i'm using windows 7 64 bit ultimate and i have 8gb of ram.

upon boot up, it uses 15% of RAM and i heard this is the normal idle load of win7, then after ten minutes of surfing the net, i was shocked to see it's using 70% of RAM. this is insane, why is that, is that normal? i'm not using any apps at the moment, and i have TuneUp utility installed. having 6gb of RAM wasted really worries me as i'm using my pc basically for 3d modeling.

i also checked and disabled activities in my tray, also checked taskman but i dont know what to check there. pls shed some light, i'm worried that i cant maximize the 8gb of RAM for more important apps.

Go to Task Manager, Processes and sort by Memory Usage. Post it here (printscreen button, go to Paint and press ctrl+v, save and use www.imgur.com to host the image. Then use the img function on the forums to post it here).
