When you get to 90% Memory Usage, then you can start worrying about. Trying to be preemptive will only cause more issues and likely just kill the performance of your machine.

Understand, using memory does not make the computer slow it makes it faster. Trying to reduce memory usage is the opposite of what you want. More memory usage == better performance. (Generally for those nit-pickers)
