I do all right with an Athlon running at about 795 Mhz. Tiger Direct
will have deals on computers, cpu+motherboard etc. that will be much
faster than that.
The efficiency of your OS will also be a factor. I am running
Slackware Linux but I am looking at Gentoo Linux which has all kinds
of speed optimizations that are selectable depending on your chip.
