Opening applications is related to the hard drive moreso than any other component. So you can get a faster hard drive or buy a solid state drive if you want faster loading speeds. RAM is critical with how much stuff can actually be opened at once.

Too many browser windows open. Cut down on that.

BTW, how much ram do you have? If you like alot of stuff running at once, then 16GB is appropriate.

Also, are you running the 64-bit edition of win?

You need to understand something about windows memory management. The philosophy is memory unused is memory wasted. If you think about it it's true. Most available memory SHOULD be used. It's just that the management of the memory needs to be done well. Windows does a pretty good job of it left to it's own.
