Hi, 256 is the min. to run XP. But it will also depend on what other programs you have running as well. I would recommend a min of 512 and an average of a gig. Once you start using photo and editing software you will need a lot more ram.
I have 3 computers and all have 2 gig of ram.

Dont forget to have a look at what type and configuration your mother board supports, it will be in your MB hand book or you can check out their web site.
