Normally, but even 4 gig of RAM right now costs less than $1k. I dunno the 
ratios, but if you were to buy an extra gig of ram (and I presume 3 more, for 
a total of 4, would be even better) it's not that much of an expense but with 
appreciable difference. What's the mem usage look like on the machine? Does 
top show any hogs?
