9GB RAM is totaly possible.. he's using 3x 3GB DDR3 Triple-Channel just google his system at Alienware AURORA..
Anyhoo.. that's a system to run a NASA operation so something must be screwed on the OS side.. Alienware likes to tweak and some tweaking normaly don't go along with some games.. what I found odd was how you are using so little physical RAM when you have so much and using so much page file "RAM" when you need so little from it.
Available OS Memory: 9206MB RAM
Page File: 2781MB used, 15630MB available
Your computer must be configured to use little RAM when in the OS (Windows 7) since normaly you should have eaten by the OS at least almost 1GB of RAM.. instead I think Alienware has tweaked the OS to only use the physical RAM (9GB) in apps/games which is a bit stupid since no game to date will need so much RAM to run smooth.. using the page file can cause some problems sometimes..
I'm not saying it's the problem but who knows..
Anyhoo.. what I like to do with those kinds of systems as soon as I receive them is FORMAT and CLEAN INSTALL :)
