The reason you are using that much memory is because windows sees that you have 8 gigs ram and loads for things than it may need to for "convenience" If you had 4 gig installed you would only be using around 2 gigs.

Trust me I found it out when I upgraded to 8 gigs. I noticed that there was more things being loaded when I booted up when the only thing I changed was the ram kit.
