I would look for a 515 or 525 on the used market.

Both can run 7.1 and both are quite fast compared to
what you are coming from.

The 515 is limited in expansion while the 525 can get quite large.

IBM sells used machines. Both of the above can be had for
little money.

Could someone recommend used configurations? Maybe even some places who
sell them. Im located in the TN/GA border area.

Its important to be able to run programs that use 36 mode (SPCENV(*s36) since the budget to convert is not there.
