Doing so will also require using the Linux version of R as there is no open source 64bit compiler to create a windows version (so I am told). Anyway, memory is getting cheap now. I got a 64bit machine from Dell with 16Gb od DDR2 for around $4000. Good luck.

Buy a machine that has at least 8Gb (better 16Gb) of RAM and proceed ...
