Virtual Memory is essentially an amount of space on your hard drive that windows uses as if it were RAM. It's completely separate from the RAM that is physically installed into your motherboard.

If you're running Windows XP, you should have 1gb of RAM installed for optimum performance. 512mb is the absolute minimum to operate with any kind of stability, and 2gb is recommended for gaming.
