laughterkillsme, what probs have you had with RM? Works great for me.
How about a memory cacheing app like Super Utilities? My ram gets bogged down after a few hours of heavy graphics stuff.
Also, look to see that there aren't a bunch of stowaways in your startup; there are some good threads at this forum describing what should and shouldnb't be there.

btw, smooth scrolling in ff is more cpu intensive than the default scrolling option
edit: DO NOT use any of those ram cleaner/optimizer/freeruppers, especially if you have windows xp
what a gimmick!
they merely put ram data onto disk, making multitasking horrendously slow
