Hello ,
            We use the Bioconductor primarily for conversion of Affy cel 
files using gcRMA,RMA etc ...Right now with a RAM of 2GB and a 32 bit 
processor we have been able to convert upto 22+ files at a single go 
(Human array 50k genes).

We are looking to upgrade our systems to improove the performance.(more 
files at  a single time)

Can anyone give me a rough estimate(through your experience or 
otherwise) on the "best configuration" that would allow more files to be 

Thanks for your time.
