What is the ideal file size for a web page?

Specifically when it comes to image sizes, what's the total file size for a webpage which includes several images.

I tend to compress images down as much as possible before it starts to visually lose quality.

We run several CMS website's and the clients tend to ask this question a lot! I'd love to hear another view on it.
