What are you planning to run on this beast? Having upgraded my P133 from
32MB to 64MB, I couldn't justify spending money to upgrade it

everything running very smoothly. Then again, as a student with little
cash, I probably have a different perspective. What does the 400+MHz crowd
think of this view?
