    I'd recommend a minimum of 256MB of RAM.
    If you can't afford the extra 128MB, at least make sure you get RAM that has a Lifetime Warranty.

    I would say 256 MB of RAM, and use Arctic Silver III Thermal Compound, it is the best you can get and not vastly expensive. You can prob find it from some overclocking websites.

    Personally, I'd prefer a minimum of 512 if you are gonna use XP (which you should), but I understand you are trying to keep the prices as low as possible.
