I have a question:
Is it worth upgrading my memory to 512 or more?
Will the performance of my comp increase by a substantial amount?
Will it boast my fps in games and decrease loading times?
I have heard that 256mb is the minimum XP will run on. Is this true?

My specs:
XP home edition
2.2Ghz P4 CPU
256MB Of memory
40GB Hard Drive
64MB Greforce 4 Graphics card.

You can never have too much memory!

I suggest you get over 1Gb of memeory for win xp. It sure has boasted my laptops performace!

try 512 and see how it improves things, some online games like battlefield 1942 benifit from 1024 of ram.

Win XP will run on 128 Mb RAM, albeit with a performance drop.

If you add another 256 it will work well; add 512 and you will fly along.
