how much memory?

Sorry about the potential lack of specificity of this question,
but how much memory should I assume Emacs has available to it?

If I'm reading files into buffers or storing them as strings or
something like this, how many characters can I store before I should
expect a crash or other weird behavior.

I've seen the "Memory Usage" node in the elisp manual, but can you
give suggestions on how to extrapolate from there to answer the above

I realize this may depend on hardware and configuration details, but
what's the general algorithm?
