For something like that I think a 64 bit Linux box (or Mac OSX) with 16
Gb RAM should be more than enough. You might even be able to get away
with 8 Gb RAM, but the price for RAM has gone down so much that 16 Gb
isn't exorbitant any longer.
Note that there are ways to analyze these data that don't involve using
the affy package (that would not require getting a new computer). You
could use the xps package, or you could go outside BioC and use
RMAexpress or aroma.affymetrix.
