2114s were pretty dense and common.  There were plenty of 16K S-100 boards with 2114s, and, of course Ohio Scientific.  Two boards would give you 32K.

I'm still in planning stages for my homebrew computer and one of my goals is to keep it period appropriate. Part of that is not using any parts or technologies introduced later than 1977.

I want my computer to have at least 32k of SRAM. So, by the end of 1977, what was the densest chip commonly available which I won't have to go bonkers trying to locate?
