I've been running systems from 2001 and just retires the AMD K6 350! Those P4's will do fine. You might want to strip them all down and run them off a networked drive to consolidate and save on redundant wattage use.

G/L we will look for you in the Fold!

if you get a decent XP computer, then use that computer as a 24/7 download computer.

something like 2.4GHz, 512MB ram(you an add more) and hard drives you can add more yourself, should be ok on electricity as old computers have 100-300w PSU's
