GAMS default Solver doesn't use much of my RAM and CPU

I noticed that when I run the solver via the GAMS IDE or Python API I don't use more than ~33% of my RAM. Is there an artificial barrier which I can put up or disable?

Tolerance for equality in GAMS/CPLEX

Is there an option in GAMS that sets the tolerance for declaring two real numbers to equal? For example, how can I tell GAMS or GAMS/CPLEX that $0.999100 = 0.99909$? Thank you for your help!
