i'm using it right now on a 512MiB RAM system, with desktop effects
on, iceweasel, konsole, konqueror and dolphin running. Yes, it's not
fast, but absolutely usable:
$ free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 503 493 9 0 36 173
-/+ buffers/cache: 283 219
Swap: 4873 0 4873
unfortunately, i haven't any tips for you...
try to disable desktop effects, it may help
