Why bitcoind consumes too much resources (core i5, 8gb memory).
And is there any possibility to decrease it, because i have an idea to put bitcoind on VPS,
but seems it'll slow down all system  Sad

I run bitcoind with standard settings on a 2GB RAM VPS w/o any issues.   1GB should be fine with a little swap space, I'd imagine..

Though on a node where I have 500+ connections, I have to restart it every week or so, else it gets up to 4GB+ in reserved memory

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

Weird. Like the guy said above, it runs fine on 2GB Ram, and a small processor. I run it on a VPS fine with those specs.
