I can't say it's not alot, but shutting down many services will free up that memory for the game. I got 4 gigs of RAM and the game runs smooth as glass.
Nobody else commented because they're not trying to run the game on highest video settings with 10 other windows open on the desktop.
+1 from here
It's actually not that bad considering other game clients I got running 1000K+ as idle. So you shouldn't be bothered by little insignificant memory usage. If people fail to live up to the minimum specs and still try and play the game it's there own fault if it stumbles.
I'm running with lowest possiple settings, 1 gb ram, pentium 4 2.6 ghz, barely runs the game, better just stay in less crowded zones and restart game often to clean the catche files. like.. after every second stf.

When game is loading it will spike around 1,040,000k in memory witch in my opinion is a lot for people that have 4 gigs or less.
Most people have far more than that these days.
Not sure if this is a memory leak but it seems so.
No, that isn't a memory leak. A memory leak would keep building memory usage until the computer finally locked up or crashed. Much like the memory leak in birth of the federation

Sounds like the system I had when I started - though mine was a 1.6ghz system e-machine. It caused some really weird graphical problems thats for sure. Though it did run
