Get:

1) Hard drive. 1/4 Gigabytes is more than enough
2) Accelerator. May I recommend, at least, a Blizzard 1230 with an 030@50 and FPU. If you feel like getting more power, get a Blizzard 040.
3) A nice memory SIMM for teh accelerator. Like one of 128MB

That's yer lot! oh, you might want a Squirrel PCMCIA SCSI inteface... or fit an ethernet card in the PCMCIA port instead.

Well, you should replace this with a Clockport serial bus... Find it at Eyetech!
