    Just got a new machine tonight and was wondering who much ram/cores to give to XP?

    Have it set to 4 GB and 2 cores now. What do you think?

    Take a look at Choosing the Right Virtual Machine Settings. In general, always start with 1 vCPU unless you have an app that can use multiple CPU. (e.g. Photoshop.) Many times, more than 1 vCPU is a waste and can make things slower.
