Well you can check task manager to make sure nothing is running you don't need. You can also add more RAM. My computer uses around 1.8 GB just sitting at the desktop, so I think adding more will be your best option.

Well do this. When you see RAM at 65% open task manager go to resources and show memory and then sort by highest to lowest. Let me see a screenshot and I will let you know if I see anything weird. What's your OS by the way?

That's reasonable. Like I said I am always using 1.8GB. Might be time to start saving for a new build.
