    With just chrome open, and if I visit a page with youtube videos it spikes to 99%, this just started happening a couple of months ago, and it gets to the point where I can't even navigate chrome since my RAM gets completely depleted (so to speak) and takes forever to even close the page.

    chrome open on google homepage

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Perfectly normal.

    8gb of ram is relatively cheap nowadays, you can even get 16gb for 60 bucks.

    It looks like "pepperflash" is your problem. Adobe Flash is a huge resource hog, and from what I can tell, so is Chrome. Try using something like flashblock and enabling HTML5 videos on YouTube?

    As another poster said, upgrade your RAM. I believe your computer supports 2 x 4GB 1333MHz sticks. You could probably find something for $35 on newegg right now.
