Does this mean I need more memory in my new Mini?

I opened all the apps that I ever use (very few) plus a bunch of tabs in Chrome. I also played a browser based video game. I attached a screenshot of the activity monitor during that. Normally it only shows 3-4GB being used.

Is this OK? I figured I would need to upgrade RAM in the next couple years, am I OK for now? What are the Cached Files?

The more RAM you have, the more the system will use. It’s fine.

Chrome is a bit hungry for memory, however it’s not paging to disk so no concern. :)
