I am CURRENTLY USING a Pentium III 800mhz with 512mb of PC133 SDRAM. It's running smooth as silk. There's nothing wrong with it at all. This includes Service Pack 2. All you have to do is keep your computer free of spyware and viruses.

Trust me, it works just fine. I click on something, and a moment later, the computer does what I told it.

System Specs:
Intel Q6600 @ 3200 1.4v
Abit IP35 Pro "The Snake"
2x2gb A-Data @ 800
Diamond HD 3870 512mb

Great FORD TRUCK resource:

My 700Mhz PIII ran XP no problem at all. My brother is still using the PC and it runs great.

its basically all about setting it up using a little bit of brains and then keeping it in pristine condition

celeron 1 Ghz?

maybe the RAM was faulty, because celeron 1Ghz is pretty fast, i had used a 533 Mhz celeron at school for years, and it was okay

im not sure what was wrong with it, it could have been a million things, all they said was that it would never boot, im thinking its a bad MBR.
