Memory Upgrade in Pentium II 233Mhz Computer

A friend has a Pentium II 233Mhz desktop computer running Windows 95. She had just 32 megs of memory. I bought and installed two 128mb memory modules and the computer recognizes them fine. Is there any downside in having 288 megabytes of memory in a Pentium II 233Mhz machine running Windows 95? How about Windows 98? I will be reformatting the friend's hard drive and installing Windows 98SE in a couple of days.

Thanks.

No downside that I can think of. Windows loves memory, the more, the better.

Hope this helps.

I don't know what downside there could be, especially from 32MB.
From what I can remember Win98se does perform faster then 95.

I think the only downside could be if you installed slower memory than what was there, but that is not a downside when you are talking 32MB. Any speed loss is more than made up for by 9 times more memory.

I read somewhere where Windows 95 will not benefit from more than 64MBs of memory. But you are the most recent one to debunk that apparent myth.

Thanks.

Windows 9x is limited to 512MB ram.
Anymore and windows may not run right, as in crashing more.
