I guess about 2000 -12,000, but I can't think of a situation where your RAM would need to handle more than one or two songs at a time. You see, RAM (rapid access memory) isn't used for storage. For storing data (like music), you should look at the capacity of the hard drive. An 8 GB drive should hold at least 2000 mp3 songs. Generally, a computer with 8 GB RAM would have a hard drive size of at least 500 GB (which would hold at least 100,000-200,000 songs).
