NONMEM memory vs. run time

Dear All,
I noticed that the Nonmem installed with NMQUAL "big nm6" defaults
instead of the standard ones results in approximately 10-times increase
in the memory required to run Nonmem (on my recent problem, from 12 MB
to 140 MB). I am wondering whether anybody checked how this influences
the run time. Is it better (in terms of the run time) to use standard
sizes, or "big" is OK if you have enough RAM?
