Default Our office computer is Pentium 4 Willemate (spellcheck) 1.7 Ghz, 512 MB SDram

The computer we use for office work / casual internet surfing, but had a Power Supply failure and after replacement has freeze/slowdowns every 10 minutes or so and then fixes itself (can't load videos or high quality graphics without a slowdown, or play even little shockwave games without a slowdown. It is:

Pentium 4 1.7 Ghz (Willemate processor I think (supposed to be very bad))
512 MB SDRam
70 GB Hard Drive

Our family friend received a new computer for $300 but he doesn't want it anymore (slightly used) and is selling it to us for $200:

Celeron D 3.33 GHz
512 MB DDR-SDRam
80 GB Hard Drive

We don't want to spend more than $200 on a replacement computer. It is merely a secondary office computer and we are on budget.

Is it worth the $200 to replace our breaking down Pentium 4 computer?

Thanks so much.

Sure, but you'll have to replace it later with something better.
