doesn't the amd k6 run at around 500Mhz?

EDIT:

is this the first computer you have ever owned?

kind of like what I started with, sept I had no tv tunner card in my first...

I will say that if you feel like upgrading later, you might be better off just buying/building a new computer

it's alright for such an old computer, if it's free then knock yourself out but don't be planning on playing any high end games anytime soon or even midend for that matter.

550mhz is the HIGHEST they go. usually more like 400-450mhz. **** slow. My family still uses one. We lost our XP disc, so if we decommission that computer, we lose our license.
