4GB memory should be much more than enough, I'm using about 2GB. You're right that processor is a key factor too. If you're using SSD Ram Drive instead of the hard disk drive, I suppose that would help too.

Danjmilos, a P4 processor is probably considered quite slow now if we compare it with Q-core that Ritho is using. I'm only using AMD D-core
