I have 2GB so I can only tell you, what other gamers have said:

Play on resource cache and textures on medium.
Optional for speed you can use these settings:

;optimize memory usage (all systems):
Cache.SizeImage=160000000
Cache.SizeMaterial=60000000
Cache.SizeMesh=90000000
Cache.SizeSound=100000000
Cache.SizeCollisionMesh=50000000
Cache.SizeAnimation=50000000
Cache.SizeSpeedTree=12000000

; the maximum settings for 1GB Systems
ResourceCache.u32ImageMaxMemUsage_Medium=96000000
ResourceCache.u32MeshMaxMemUsage_Medium=40000000
ResourceCache.u32SoundMaxMemUsage_Medium=20000000
ResourceCache.u32MaterialMaxMemUsage_Medium=21000
ResourceCache.u32CollisionMeshMaxMemUsage_Medium=1 7000000
ResourceCache.u32AnimationMaxMemUsage_Medium=35000 000
ResourceCache.u32SpeedTreeMaxMemUsage_Medium=75000 0

Use Shirons Tool to bypass the "smartheap - out of memory"-bug completely.
This tools is a Gothic Starter and it reserves some memory (choose 100 MB).
When the error occurs, you can change to the desktop, release the 100 MB
and the push the retry button on the smartheap requester. Gothic can finish the save game process.
Then close gothic and start again.

short:
Unpack "G3Starter.exe" and "memTool.dll" in your Gothic 3 folder and make desktop link to "G3Starter.exe" then start it.

PS:
make sure that no unnessary processes are running on your computer - the msconfig.exe - tool can help.
