    When I use photoshop I lose 2 or 3 gigs on my hdd, then when I close it I get gigs on my hdd back? In iStat my ram isnt maxed out.

    Photoshop requires ~5x filesize in disk space for scratch.
    This always occurs regardless of the available RAM.
    This is why Photoshop Gurus advocate high speed disk arrays for scratch.
