Default Choosing amount of memory

I noticed that the memory value to use in the torture test does not cause a lot of swapping when doing a custom torture test. My system has 256MB RAM and the custom torture test default value is 159MB. I noticed in Task Manager that it takes 153,xxx K of memory (for 1792 FFT). Prime95 uses 93-99% CPU.

If I entered 168, the system would swap and the CPU would be busy swapping giving prime95 0-33% of CPU.

My Qs:
1. Is 159MB the optimal amount of RAM to use for my system?
