If you want to recover a little bit more memory and CPU you could quit the Finder. By default Finder does not have a Quit menu item but you can put it back by running the following command in a Terminal window.
$ defaults write com.apple.finder QuitMenuItem -bool YES
$ killall Finder
The defaults line tells Finder to include the Quit menu and the "killall Finder" restarts the Finder so the menu appears.
You can restart the Finder using the Finder icon in the dock. Also Finder will restart automatically as soon as OS X realises no other applications are running.
You can find detailed instructions (with screenshots) for this change at http://www.wikihow.com/Create-a-%22Q...-With-Terminal
