I was kinda speaking more on a broader term of "common". I think my mentioning of the top was 4MB was a context clue here cause like now not everyone can afford a top end PC. If a top end PC had 4MB then a more common PC would have 256K ect. To elaborate on that, in the mid 90s my first PC was a Comodore 64 and my dad was gaming with a 386 and 6MB of RAM in DOS. Playing games like Descent and Wing Commander. My uncle had a 486 and 12MB of RAM but didn't know how to utilize that power so my dads machine actually ran better (uncle was always worse at computers than my dad). I think at the time the top CPU was a Pentium 1.
To make an example of this in modern times a common gamer PC would be a dual or quad core with 4GB of RAM and the top would be hex with 12GB tri channel. The avg house PC is usually a dual core with 2 or 3GB of RAM.
I think we can all agree on one thing though, DO WANT.
