    system cache is where system stores recently used data.size of the system cache is assigned by the amount of ram needed by the applications.if windows need more memory than what is available,windows will lower the size of system cache.
    the longer u use the computer,the more no of files u have used or accessed ,the larger is the system cache.Again windows will adjusts it based on the memory needs.
