As per my understanding - Physical Memory displayed in MB
Total - Amount of memory installed in system, (RAM Sticks?)
Cached - The space / amount of memory used by system, background services, processes etc.
Available - system can use it, may be something like pre-cached or ready to be used.
Free - blank space, not claimed by any application

its a bit hard/confusing to understand Available and Free.

paged - The data in memory which can be moved to pagefile on hard drive if needed when system needs more RAM.
Nonpaged - data in memory which cannot be moved to pagefile on hard drive.

This is how I understand, may be the article below will give you more details and better understanding.
