Checking memory usage

HI

I have a Windows 2008 Server, 64bit, with 4GB RAM. I want to ensure that we don't need anymore so I was thinking of using some sort of Perfmon counter so that I could view if free memory was ever that low.

Could someone expand on the best way to do this?

On a longer term note, is there some sort of SCOM alert that could generate an email when free memory was running low?

you can configure a performance counter data collector set for specified value & configure alert type to start a task. Task may be a script to send email
