how much graphics RAM?

System requirements for Mathematica 4.0 under Windows NT do not say
anything about graphics (video) RAM.

To run Mathematica reasonably under Windows NT on a system with 128 MB
RAM and up to a 256 MB swap file, and a resolution of 1024 x 768, what
recommendations do you have, and why, for how much graphics RAM is
desirable.  This is for undergraduate student use with 2D and 3D
graphics, including animations.

In particular, is 4 MB graphics RAM really enough? 8MB?
