Exclamation RAM LIMITS/ Plug-In Chart??

So after PT crashing due with a Memory Error about 10 times in one night I started doing some research. I now know that PT can only use 2G of ram irreguardless of how much you have. Does anyone have a chart with appox how much ram some of the more popular intruaments and plug-ins use.

For Ex:

Pro-Tools New Project. 800,000 bites
Mini Grand - 400,000 bites
Kontact Player with Full Kit Loaded - 250,000 bites

These are 3 that I have noticed so far. As you see your already at 1.5G and haven't hit a note yet... Geeez... Is there anything that I can do to save more memory resources???
