Clock speed and memory

Hi all.  I'm considering taking the plunge, but I'm unsure on the specs.  Specifically, the relevance of clock speed with the majority of the game library.  Are the CPUs running @ 10MHz "good enough" or do the higher clocked versions have a tangible benefit on this platform?

Also, what is a good amount of memory to target?  Based on the gamesx faq it seems 2MB will get the job done.



When I had my X68 machines I found that I liked the XVI most because it looked the best, but it was the extra RAM, not speed, that made one machine better than another.  4MB+ at 10MHz is enough for most things, the rest is specific needs and bragging rights.
