    Whats the slowest CPU and RAM you have used on win XP and worked.

    I have an old P2 350 - 128mb Ram. My friends dad wanted to use it for word and excel, mabey surfing. So far it seems to be ok.

    Put another 128MB RAM in there and turn off a lot of the eye candy (classic theme with no animations and stuff) and it should be ok.

    Ram is important even in future ..
    Tested on : PIII800 - 128 Ram - worked fine .

    yea. ive gotten xp to work on a 386 200mhz with 64 mem. lol. this is a REALLY old computer. just disable about everything like "eye candy" and about 75% of the services. go to http://www.blkviper.com and there is a bunch of info on windows 2k and xp services.
  6. I am running on my 3 year old 500 Mhz Celeron CPU and 256 MB SD Ram and it is running good. Just have to be careful about how many programs I have running. Two to three programs running at the same time is ok.

    I am considering buying a new computer next year. Money is a problem so I have to save.
