with regards to need, i've run on a 386 with 2 mb of RAM. with regards to want, it's gonna take as much as you like :)

if you only use it for windows games and maybe write or small applications, 4 mb should be enough. if you want to use bigger applications or more applications at the same time, i recommend 8 or more.

it also depends on the speed of your CPU.
