Recently upgraded to an i7 processor with 16 gigs of ram and yet pse9 does not run any faster. It seems there is only about 3 gigs of ram allocated. How do I get more ram allocated?

Photoshop Elements is a 32bit application, so it is limited to allocating about 3gb of RAM. Photoshop CS5, which is a 64bit application, can allocate greater than 3gb of RAM
