    the max recommended size that the program tells you is 16MB. so that's what i currently set my XP at.

    but on the other hand, it gives you the option to set it at 32MB. i'm wondering why?
    given i'm using MBP C2D, i have plenty of video memory. would i benefit anything if i set it to 32MB?

    Not unless you want to drive a 30' display with Parallels. I set mine to 8mb and its just as happy as it was when i tried 32mb..
