I would recommend at least a gig for any of todays general computer, or at the very least 512mb, especially if you are going to do anything like in the example you gave.

Also, a faster larger capacity internal HDD would also help with the same thing.
It's RDRAM, I don't even think you can buy it anymore.

HAF 932 -- ASUS P8Z68-V
Intel i5 @ 4.5Ghz -- CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus
8GB Corsair Vengeance Jet Black 1600MHz -- 2x XFX ATi Radeon HD 6970 2GB
