With the nForce2 chipsets its best to run the memory at the same speed as the CPU's FSB so with an XP2700+ that means PC2700/DDR333/166MHz minimum but as to the amount of memory will largely depend on what you do with the system (512MB is fine but for editing large files or some of the newer games 1024MB/1GB would be better).
