IDEA build# 2250 very slow

My build 2250(4.5.3) is very slow. It is using 200mb from the 512 on my computer. At the bottom IDEA i see 78M of 185M. My project is small about 20-30 programs.

I even tried the latest EAP build and had similar issue.
Earlier versions (2) of IDEA used to be very responsive.

What can i do to enhance the performance?

thanks

Is it possible to get version 2 of this product for my 4.0 license.
The version 4 and 5 are soooo slow. I am ready to switch to something else soon.

First of all, what specifically is slow? Saying IDEA is slow doesn't
tell anything. The more info you give, the better response we can give.

Typically, slowness has to do with either memory/hardware or large
files. Some possible rememdies off the top of my head: Try increasing
the -Xms and -Xmx in idea.lax. If that doesn't help, try buying some
memory, or a faster hard drive, or a faster CPU (all IDEs these days
fairly decent machines). If that's not an option, try the EAP version
and take CPU snapshots during the slow operations, then file a bug
report at http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/ and upload the snapshot. If you
have large files, the latest EAP versions have the capability to reduce
the level of inspections on a per-file basis. Or you can contact support
at http://www.jetbrains.com/support/idea/
