Raster Accelerate Memory Issue

Hello All,

I am using ArcMap 10 (editor) on a HP xw6600 with dual Xeon Cpu's 2.8ghz, Quadro FX 3800 GPU, 4 gigabytes of memory, Windows 7 64bit. I just had Arc 10 installed on my pc. I have hardware accelerator turned on in Arc 10 and in Image Analysis I selected to accelerate 26 georeferenced tiffs. Everything works great when panning through my images and digitizing for about an hour until Arc 10 eats up 1.6 gigabytes of memory and crashes. (see linked image) I did create a dump file before it crashed and the file was 2.2gb

I know Arc 10 is not 64bit.

So my questions are:

Do I need more memory?
Am I trying to accelerate too many rasters?
