My previous windows based machine really struggled to do this with 2GB of RAM, even though the processor was almost as fast as my macbook pro's, and it had twice the graphics card memory. apples operating system is efficient but I think its wrong to expect it to be so good it compensates to the tune of your current setup having half the amount of RAM of your previous setup ? Personally I would take advantage of all those RAM slots and be running at least 6GB of RAM if you've got a machine with such huge amounts of processing power.

Macbook pro 15 inch hooked up to eizo cg241 monitor,IPod classic 80gb.
