    Windows RAM usage scales to the amount if RAM available, up to a maximum of 3.4GB (that I've seen). The rest takes place on the swap file, so you don't really see it happening in Task Manager but you can feel it happening from how slow it becomes.

    So... nothing here surprises me. 3GB is recommended for 32bit, 4GB+ is recommended for 64-bit Windows 7.
