Then you're good to go. 700MHz computer will NOT feel different than your current one; trust me on this. I went and bought a 700MHz processor and motherboard from a guy for 60$, next thing you know, it burnt out. Just save your time.
Maybe some people's parents dont have the money to give them for a new computer? $1000 is a lot for some people. My mom wouldn't help me pay for my computer. I had to use all of my money for it. The only way my mom helped me is by putting it on her credit card, I had to pay her back immediatly though.
