Thanks.
300 megabytes per core would probably be overkill if you just want to run prime95 or mprime. I'd recommend Linux 64 bit for best results but ms-windows of almost any vintage works OK too.

If you want to run anything else as well that will probably be more important influence on the memory needed.
