PS2-Maximum RAM Used by Photoshop?

In the Preferences of PS2, under the Memory & Image Cache section, How many levels of cache and how much memory usage do you dedicate to PS2 if you have 2 gigs of RAM?

I have been giving it 85% with the default 6 levels of cache and have not had any issues, but thought since I was reinstalling it I would ask others what they set thiers too.

Well I do ok on 55% of 1.5G ram, 6 lvls cache for PSCS2 on my win2k machine. Some slight slowdowns when dealing with very large files, or large volumes of files and/or when I'm working concurrently in photoshop and illustrator etc...hehe not to mention all the crud I got running in the background.
