Ram Requirements for Server 2008 R2?

Rowanrichards
Hello, I am running on a tight budget and I just wanted to ask something.I am not in a business environment, I'm just a home user experimenting with servers and stuff. I have purchased a used business desktop (Dell Optiplex 755) With 80gb HDD and 1gb RAM. I am going to install Windows Server 2008 R2 and it should work fine. However, I want this server to run Active Directory Domain Services, DNS, File Services and DHCP, but I'm only going to connect 1 or 2 Client PCs with maybe around 100 users. Is 1gb enough to run all that? Also, is there anything I can do to upgrade it to 2gb ram for free, E.g. Paging files?
Thanks In Advance,
Rowan
