I still use win 2k. It actually runs smoother than xp on my pc, although, I also have linux and mac os x installed.
1.5ghz is ok for simple tasks like word processing and internet listening to music , as this is all i use my computer for i would only go for a cpu of 2ghz max prolly 1.3-1.8ghz i would call fine , and min for win xp would be 800mhz-1ghz with at least 256MB ram thats for me anyway

Default Re: graphics card upgrade for a 1.3ghz processor

i finally got my graphics card in the mail today. I bought the one CABBPAPP recomended. I installed it today and it works great for what i need it for. I only have one drawback. I have the resolution set at 1280X768 but if i go any smaller lower the screen and words stretch vertically. The higher i go the better it is but it is to small to read. Is there any way i can get the screen to a more solid font.

Is it a widescreen monitor? If not then things are stretched out because your running a widescreen resolution on a non-widescreen monitor. Look for resolutions like 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x960/1024 etc.
