I would also recommend that Tugrul Temel consider first showing his code 
to a local Mathematica expert. All too often, in my experience, a 
calculation consumes excessive memory for spurious reasons. For example, 
it is easy to end up generating symbolic expressions, such as 
(Sqrt[3]+Sqrt[7])/2 where a single approximate number was required.
