Sufficient RAM for Windows 98se?

128MB, if you have more than 512MB you need to do some tweaking or else you'll get memory errors.
There is no "optimal", there is a minimum (64MB - which sucks), and as much as you can insatll (512MB?).

Run at least 184MB. My performance improved nicely when I went from 128MB to 184MB. Or 256MB if that works out better with available RAM sticks.

Generally the more the better. More ram means less pathetically slow hard disk accesses.

Min 256 and it will run well. When I was running 98SE I had a stick of 256MB and a 128MB one as well. That system ran great. Then I got stupid, I upgraded. It was never the same. :s

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
