Unfortunately, I just don't have the space to work only with lossless/uncompressed. In answer to your question, I have 4gb, but only up to 3 are recognized.
I also think I figured out what the issue was. Since I was using compressed video, it looks like I gave the clips a much higher bit rate than I should have. In the end, I was using more than double what was needed. So even though my clips were fairly small in filesize, they were overly taxing on my machine.
Does that sound about right?
