In 2001 having less than 256MB of RAM was painful slow.
In 2001 I had just built a PIII 1ghz 1GB of ram machine.
Ah, the good old days of WIndows 98 computers and things like dial up and AOL. I have a lot of old computers from the 1990s and one at my fathers house that's a mid 90s Dell XPS with Windows 98.
lol most of the computers i worked had windows 2000 / Slackware, PIII or Duron and low memory; it was expensive.
As long as you have enough RAM to run NESticle you'll be fine.
I'll get right on that. (Y)
Why not just download moar RAM (hurr hurr)?
220mb of ram, that's insanity! Back in my day no one ever needed more than 640k!!

Remember those programs back in the day that promised to "Double your memory" wihtout actually buying a stick?
ya, I installed one on our Gateway P5 60 back in the early 90's and bluescreened the computer to the point where it wouldn't boot up anymore. My parents had to call the local computer guy to come and fix it.
And now you're the local computer guy!
In fact during high school I did an internship with him for once class period a day back in 1997. Funny how things come full circle.
