I use a couple of G5's with wacoms, a quantel paintbox with Barco 28 inch calibrator monitor and more coffee than is good for me.

No, most files I do are massive comps, so when you start out with about 10-70 base images to work with, when you start adding adjustments etc... I find that files bigger than about 11Gigs, that's when my machine starts disagreeing.

Is it a single composite image out of 10-70?

LOL. Nothing wrong with that Fuzz; it focuses the mind! I used to retouch stuff 'destructively' which keeps the file sizes down. Hardly necessary these days but old habits die hard.
