The answer to your question depends on a couple factors. Is there a head and seat already attached? Does the window have a nailing flange?

Normally, you want about 1/2" on each side in order to shim, square and insulate. So your R.O. would be 1" larger than the window itself. One would have to see the window and picture the install in order to say for sure, however.

Whatever brand window you are using will tell you what the R.O is.
