I've had 512mb of RAM on my machine for months and months.....no problems at all....the system recognises it and everything.....comes in useful sometimes too....!!

512 No Problems which I am aware of.

Deep, I always thought that the maximum RAM normally supported by W98SE was 512Meg, however if you invest in HyperOS, it is possible to run 1.024 Gig. Hope this is of help.

Unless you use a memory manager such as Cacheman.

No more than 512mb is recommended.

You can run easily 768mb, i have!!! With a few settings being changed it is possible to run 1Gb, a friend has done it I have seen it working.

but 'SiSoft Sandra' & 'Aida32' both say 639MB :o)

Yes, Microsoft recommend that the maximum Ram for 98 is 512MB - or even less if you experience instabilty, which is possible.

I use 384.
