    I have a Dell 4300 1433 megahertz Intel Pentium 4 running XP SP2.
    It has 128mb installed memory with one memory slot empty.
    I want to increase the memory. Should I install 128 or 256 or 512?

    256 will be OK unless you can say you are doing something that requires more - i.e. video editing. I f you are a normal user the 256 will be just fine - Get it from www.crucial.com

    Gotta say that memory is so cheap that boosting to 512mb would be worth it. XP performs better at this amount

    The cost/performance of anything below 512MB is your situation would be a waste of money. XP needs a minimum of 256MB or RAM to run and 512MB to run very smoothly. With one free slot get a 512MB stick and add it to the existing 128MB.
