Win xp is a tricky Operating System, a lots of functions on it need to set manually such as tweaking. For my case, although i have 384MB ram n i tweaked my OS, after i enter my window, my system only left around 280-300MB ram, the rest all used as startup program, background services n etc. 1 of my friend that running win XP Pro, when entering window 256MB of physical ram gone already. So u see, if u only have 64MB ram, after entering window, how much physical ram u have ?


AMD Athlon 64x2 4000+
