For starters I think you should change your capital I's to i because I 
is locked and protected as Sqrt[-1]. I get the same message (Out of 
Memory message) for my somewhat pedestrian Win XP with Intel Celeron.

I get something when I change the iterator to 10
m= Table[(i-j)+3.*j^-4 +50*i,{i,1,10000,10},{j,1,10000,10}];
