    Not possible to give an opinion - we don't have enough information.

    OSX usually puts all of the RAM to use, don't stress out about what Active Wired Inactive and Free mean. Let OSX do its memory management.

    You may have a problem, but that isn't it. Can you look at Activity Monitor and see what processes are running?

    Are you sure it's not Spotlight indexing or TimeMachine slowing the machine down?

    I'm running off Tiger and I don't know what the deal with it is, this is what it says when I look and not that much is runing but if I open up my other apps such as Team speak or iChat it just seems to run like the old black and white Dial up only computers and I have to wait 5 mins for a page to load like my e mail or something.
