Even with over 700mb video memory and 4 gigs of system memory availble with an X64 os, with page filing turned off, Vista will minimize crysis and tell me that the system is running low on memory. Does the same with HL2 cinematic mod 8 as well.

Turning on page filing and the errors go away... for me at least.
4 GB in x64 is not a lot of RAM. Windows uses about 2 GBs itself. You need 6 GB or more to turn it off in x64 or you'll run close to running out of RAM.
