yes, but the biological relevant unit
ftp://ndbserver.rutgers.edu/NDB/coordinates/na-biol/1f8v.pdb1
contains 60 models of this asymmetric unit PDB file.
On Linux (other performance is good:-) it uses 348 MB
RSS (on IRIX, if I remember right, about 480, and on
XP the overall performance is unusable)

>And the file from scop cannot require 512Mb or it
would not work in the Java Plug-in applet environment.

    Miguel, I think you posted something about don't having a tool to
    see memory usage... Please check out JMP... I've used the
    program some time ago, and it looked usefull... the amount of
    information you get can be overwhelming, so you can do
    selections on certain java packages...:
