Has anyone crashed their SolidWorks session do to insufficient VM?

We are running SW2005 SP 4.0

We have Dell 470 configured as follows for our Design Group:

Xeon 3.2GHz

4GB Ram


Quadro FX3450

Dual LCD Monitors: 17" & 20"

Virtual Ram set at 4000 min. to 4050max

When designing some of our complex Housings, SolidWorks will stop do to lack of memory.

I have a Laptop with AMD chip & 1GM of Ram with XP-Pro SP1 and I am able to set my VM to 16GB.

With this we were able to complete the design.

I have had this happened also in SW2006.

We are about to update to SW2007 but I have been thinking of adding another smaller and faster H.D. to handle the VM only, which has been recommended on M.S. website.
