Default Re: Help understanding CPU Usage, RAM, Disk Usage.

In Activity Monitor | System Memory, watch the page outs number. The page in number isn't interesting at all. If page outs stays at 0, or very rarely advances, you've got enough RAM.

If you've got enough RAM, and you're still maxing out the CPU, there's really not much you can do. More RAM won't help.
