This site will help you quite abit:

I'd suggest you get at least 256 Mb of RAM.
But better still would be 512Mb.

If you plan on playing any newer Games you might want to consider getting a ATI Radeon 9000 instead of a geforce2.

It dosen't cost too much and is still alot quicker than geforce2.

But really don't go for less than 256Mb RAM, at least if you are going to use ME, or XP.
