I haven't had a prob with my last system running tons of vst's per channel in rewire mode plus all the reverbs, compressors and eq's running in reason. 2.8 dual core,550watts,2gb of ram.
If you need to use more ram then why don't you go to 64 bit os. I don't know what programs your using but I'm sure the major ones will work fine like Steinberg,Cakewalk,Ableton,Pro tools
