300 visits is not a lot. I run one site on cheap Godaddy shared hosting. 
Almost every post has lots of pictures of large size in it of the 
paddling we've done. It also runs a forum (bbPress) and we see 2000+ 
visits a day. I recently installed a caching plugin but only to speed 
the site up a bit. We had no memory errors.

What host is this out of curiosity?
