Saving an assembly as a part

I am creating a PCB panel from many PCB assy's. I have it all arranged the way I want and I have saved it as an assembly. The assembly's file size is about 6.5 Mb.  I want to save it as a part because I think that if I do the file will be smaller. Every time I try and do this though, Solidworks bogs down. I am watching the memory usage in Task Manager keep spooling up (1.8 Gigs right now) so, I know it's still trying to save the file.

Have I done something wrong? Better yet, is there a better way to do this?

Thanks in advance,
