There should be a sticky on RAM somewhere around here that can help. Nevertheless, we need to know what motherboard you have to help you in your research. In this day and age I wouldn't put less than 1 Gig.

You need to know if you 133, 233, 400, etc. You can probably find out by taking off your memory card and there might be a stcker telling you what kind. The lower the number the cheaper. So if you have a cheap motherboard I wouldn't expect a low number. It's happened to me with two computers.
And I would say around 512 unless you're a gamer. I mean, I lived A LONG time very happily with 256.
