I don't recommend the use of Cheat Engine because you really need to know what you're doing, and also will get you banned in any game with Punkbuster enabled if you leave it running by accident.
Previous tests put it to 4.8 GB of RAM doing nothing. I would now estimate it to be around 3-3.5 GB of RAM doing nothing. It's definitely at least 3 GB.
Getting rid of this wasted RAM would drop the game below a 4 GB RAM requirement, allowing the 32-bit systems to still be able to play and less people to need an upgrade. There's no point to have this requirement.
The ONLY upside is that the simple little trainers that allowed people to unlock everything with the push of a button is a bit harder to do. The downside? It's still easy as hell through Cheat Engine.
Sorry Activision but this is just stupid.
