Adding System Memory

I'll be blunt here: At the time of this writing, memory is dirt cheap. If you're running Windows 98, I recommend at least 128 MB of RAM; if you're running Windows NT, ME, 2000, or XP, I wouldn't settle for less than a minimum of 256 MB of system RAM. If your computing budget allows more than these minimums, then by all means add more!

If you're unsure how much memory is available to Windows, right-click on the My Computer icon and select Properties from the pop-up menu. Figure 3.14 illustrates the System Properties dialog that appears in Windows XP; as you can see, this particular machine has 384 MB of RAM.
