Choose the numbers of MB for hash tables according to the type of computer you have.
Rybka engine uses this memory (MB) to remember the positions it has searched, so a bigger hash table will slightly increase its level.
Just make sure that your computer has enough memory for the hash tables well as any other applications (programs), which are running (i.e. music in the background).
If you set the hash table size too high, the operating system will start using the hard drive, which you definitely want to avoid. If you're not sure, choose a small value.
If you choose to big number for your hash table it can slow down the engine.
Tip: Calculate Hash tables size as a total amount of your computer's RAM divided by 2.
