Actually that may be far from sufficient, especially if the computer
is 64-bit. In my experience after some browsing sessions, memory
leaks, etc., the system starts swapping, and until you reboot not all
the memory gets released (even if you close down most applications).

Does your system use swap when it is slowing down? Is it still slow
immediately after a reboot?
