What's a good PC for Matlab?

I'm getting ready to buy a new Matlab computer. I now have a DX-2 66, with 16
megs of RAM, Diamond Viper Video card, SCSI II hard drives, eisa bus I think.
I do signal processing; bring in 40,000 element vectors, and try ideas on
them. I do time frequency analysis, sometimes have 400x 400 element mesh
plots. It takes a long time to compute and a long time to print. At 400x400
it's sometimes hard to see the detail on a laser III.
Do I now want a Pentium 166, with Triton chip set, and so many PCI slots, and
ISA slots? Do I need a lot more memory. 512 Cache, pipeline burst.
How can I sensibly figure this out. I will appreciate any advice. Is the
SCSI bus a waste?
