  1. (Sorry if this is too much info - i didn't know how much would be useful)

    I've been playing Football Manager (not in full screen) for ages with loads of programs up including firefox and MSN, and it's been fine.

    However, now, whenever i get a few weeks into a game it is "dangerously low on memory" and then is immediately "out of memory and will now close."

    Another think is that in the task manager fm.exe slowly rises in it's memory usage from 30mb to around 300mb!

    It even does this when i merely have Fm and windows media player open.

    Heres my dxdiag:
