Maximum RAM for Windows XP Pro 32-bit

April 3, 2011 at 09:19:42
Specs: Windows XP SP3, P4 3GHz/512 MB RAM

I believe it's around 2-6 GB but I'm not sure. I know the maximum RAM for Windows XP 64-bit is 128 GB but I have a 32- bit OS.

You probably don't need even 4gb.

I guess 4 GB isn't really necessary. I just use my computer only to go online and for word processing.

"I just use my computer only to go online and for word processing."

In that case, you will probably notice a difference if you have 1gb of ram rather than 512mb, but you may notice no difference when you have more than that.

Virtual memory in Windows is a completely different subject.
