[tor-relays] memory requirements

I have just setup a tor-relay and I am wondering if the resource requirements are still current:
 "A non-exit relay faster than 40MBit/s should have at least 1 GB of RAM."[1]

My relay is sitting at ~2.77G currently. I set the option:
MaxMemInQueues 6GB

Just wondering if this is any cause for concern? I realize the utilization is less than the limit but I just don't remember relays I have run in the past using this much memory.
