im in the process of getting together a P120 build and trying to keep it period correct .. its going to be a christmas 1995 very late present..
back then a very nice upper end PC was a 120 (with the 133 being at the top) with 16 mb RAM.. ram was incredibly expensive with 32MB being around $1000 USD...
i have 32mb in the system at the moment and the only other config that i can do is 8 or 64 (that is what i own already).. the ram in this system was actually 64 (dated 99 i think) so was upgraded at a later time when ram had come down way in price..
so the question is what difference in performance does going to 32 make over 16 .. ill be running all the usual programs like period FPS's and racing sims (doom, need for speed, warcraft, wing commander 3)..
