That laptop is amazing BTW. I've never seen a laptop that good. It would even go as far as to say it would perform as well as most high end desktops.
Total system memory usage?
Vista does consume a lot of memory it's self.

Yes, total memory usage. But Vista handles the memory management better than XP and assigns it better.

The problem I had was that my brother had an ATI USB capture card. He was using XP Pro x64. By the time ATI was going to mae 64 bit drivers, Vista was announced and ATI basically said "Screw you." So he had to get XP Home.

That's the trouble with drivers. I hear they have improved though but it wouldn't hurt to do your research beforehand.

Nah, SLI isn't worth it. Intel chipsets are generally better. Stick with the GA-P35-DS3.
