I also use WSAD 5 on a P4 with 1Gb RAM regularly. My experience is that the default config is far from optimal, but a few things help:
1) Upgrade to Fix Pack 1. This seems to make quite a difference.
2) Keep the workspace small and use multiple workspaces. I create a windows short-cuts for each workspace and use the -data option to specify which directory to use. EG
"C:Program FilesIBMWebSphere Studiowsappdev.exe" -data "C:WSADWorkspace1"
3) Under Window->Preferences, I turn off auto-compilation and validation:
Workbench->"Perform build automatically on resource modification"
Validation->"Run validation automatically when you save changes to a resource"
