"When you just have 512MB mem, when booting to KDE, Try to you open firefox with 4-6 tab, a couple of program and you'll run out of mem.


512MB would be a minimum. If you want to run KDE yet you have only 512MB RAM, either buy some more (it will be worth it), or make sure you pare KDE down to the minimum settings.

Also, here are some tips:

Having said that, really, buying a bit more memory is really the easiest and most effective way to to go.

I ran KDE4 versions prior to 4.4 on a 450mhz P2 with 384MB ram After my P4 system died. It an as fast as KDE 3.5.x and alot snappier over time than the XP partition. And it ran very well on an old P3 700mhz 256MB laptop that I played with.
