Default Re: Is 512MB RAM enough for video chat?

so when microsoft said the minimum upload speed should be 56kbps, which one of the numbers from my results do i compare to that number?
my result: upload speed: 373 kbps (46.6 KB/sec transfer rate)....do i use the 373 number in which case i am way ahead of the necessary bandwidth, or do i use the 46.6 number in which case i am a little behind the ball.

If the minimum speed should be 56kbps that would be compared to 373kbps.

Im almost sure its been said a zillion times, but its your connection more then anything when you upload stuff, because when you use a webcam you upload video... So, yeah
