Default Pentium 2 400mhz for basic internet use

Would an old pc using a p2 400mhz and 256 ram be enough for basic web browsing. For instance, going to ebay, google news, even downloading a few basic videos..

Thanks

yea, since the CPU is slow, any extra RAM will help but, that should be enough for someone that doesnt want blazing speed

What OS are you going to use?

*EDIT* - i notice this is your first post, Welcome the TF.

That should run fine. Since it's not a Celeron, it has a bit of power.
