I had a 286-12. First time I saw Monkey Island 2 in 256 color, with the Adlib FM blaring thru that crappy Radio Shack speaker was mind-blowing.
/Although, Realsound thru the PC speaker, and that odd EGA mode that Access Software used was pretty wild, for the time.

2MB of RAM (full-length ISA CARD)
SVGA Card (Cirrus Logic 1MB ISA)
3.5" 1.44MB Floppy
14.4 USR Modem
That got me playing shareware games off BBS's and such. Though most of the good stuff wanted a 386 by that point. I don't think we got a Soundblaster until the next PC.
