Oh, don't go DSL if it's actually for a 10 year old.

Just put Ubuntu or Fedora on, I know Fedora doesn't chew up more than 512 ram normally. The CPU is beefy enough for sure. Both will do anything Windows will, besides heavy gaming. You may even be able to play something like Minecraft on it, maybe Cube 2: Sauerbraten (and this only depending how good the onboard is) And Flash for youtube and games for sure.

The kid is probably going to want games. Hell, I'd want games.

The computer is jamming even on Google Chrome. So I need to find something good. My bad about GPU its a 64megs AGP 4X...still better than the onboard.

The web browsers are ram hungry, so it's probably the ram doing it.

Whatever you pick though, even if it's easy to understand- if it's boring as piss then no ten year old is going to use it anyway.

Try this for a web browser as a last resort:

Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
stinger608 just messaged me and told me about this thread. Wow, I'm loving this stuff! I got into computers when my dad bought his first 486, which I still have around and is currently hooked up. Then I ran a super socket 7 and a socket 370 system for years, I think I ran Win98 till 2006! I didn't even have an XP system till I built my first gaming rig, which then a year later Vista came out. Then I went back and "maxed out" the socket 7 and 370, and both of them are still running. Mainly I just always wanted these rigs to fly back when I first used them, and now they do.

When I get a chance I'll get some pictures and go a lot deeper into specs and stuff. I can tell you guys this though: Those modern PCI nvidia cards, like ZOTAC ZT-60604-10L GeForce GT 610 512MB 64-bit DDR... will work on boards as old as socket 7 (you just need a pci 2.3 slot I believe and an OS for the drivers). But ideally you'll want to go no older than socket 370, cause you'll want the SSE instructions on the CPU (pentium III is the oldest to have this). So for a system with a AMD k6 (no SSE), you won't be able to run anything 3d- the drivers bluescreen. Modern ATI/AMD cards, in my experience, won't go on anything older than a socket 370.

And for OS, WinXP will run on socket 7 if you have at least 512 ram. Vista and Win7 will run on socket 370/Pentium III rigs, only you probably won't like it. Win8 WANTS SSE2, so I wouldn't bother, however I did get it running on a socket 370 but it crashed every so often. So I use Fedora 19 i686 instead, and it works pretty well.

For older systems, I use the fanmade "Unofficial Windows 98 SE Service Pack"

or


^That. I have gotten Damn Small Linux to boot and run on a 486 with 16mb ram (I later maxed it out to 36mb). These older rigs though have shoddy old cd-rom drives that have trouble running live cds, so I'd replace them first to make installation quicker and less error prone.

There's also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiny_Core_Linux which seems to be more frequently worked on.

WELCOME! :toast: and i LOVE DSL too!

Windows is surprisingly tolerant of slow hardware. Not quite to the extent that Linux can be (I really have to emphasize can though). I have a Socket 370 which is actually quite fun to play with. 1,400 MHz Pentium III-S. Not a big deal or anything. Just the fastest mass produced Socket 370 processor EVER MADE.

YEP I am home here! I got one too, granted I bought it in 2008 or so for very cheap compared to back then. Love that thing though.

I ran Windows 7 Ultimate for a time on dual 700Mhz P3 Xeons. Pretty snappy for a 15-year-old platform.

Oh, yes. I bought mine off eBay for approximately $5 a couple years ago, I believe. They're not practical by any means, but they're fun. I think the P3-S works in dual-cpu boards too. I'd like to do a nostalgia build some day like that.

We have a dual P3 server at work that I stuck Debian on and it did a rather good job as an internal server until the head honcho came down and said "Why are you still using that thing? Stick that upstairs. You can't do anything with that!"

I used to have a P5-100, but I was like 9 at the time and ripped it apart and now I have nothing left to show of it.

It was a pretty decent case though, had enough room for a Dual Athlon MP system I threw into it at one point and then some.

Windows XP on a P2 233Mhz is quite slow.

Will sort out some pictures later, didn't have a mouse so I didn't bother with screenshotting.
agreed, my 2 laptop with PII : linux only but PIII starting with 450mhz to XXXXmhz run fine with XP, just like my Veriton board and "only" 256mb ram + a RageLT

sidenote: that would be weird that a PIII would not run fine XP and a Athlon Pluto core would ... i know intel suck big time ... oh wait nonononono NO i did not mean that! i meant AMD was a BIG shot with the K7 ... then ... void and emptiness, still good but not the excellency from the K6-2/III, Athlon and Athlon XP, sad sad ... so now everytime i think about AMD im filled with nostalgia of the past time when they where a good competitor for Intel

AMD was pretty rare here until the XP:s came along and crapped all over the P4:s.

fix'd, no offense ofc, we have (yes i wrote "we") to recognize that AMD was awesome from the "intel clones" periode till the Athloncalypse and XP and then downfall, oh well they still have a market and i doubt AMD will die so easily.

still the Athlon (non XP) was above the PIII, Duron where better than Celeron (not hard ahaha :D ), the K6-2/III where a good alternative to the PII and every single clone of Intel CPU from AMD (AMD286/386/486 and Co) had better and higher clocking than Intel counterpart :) good ol' time

1st pc a AM286 equiped commodor under DOS then a I386 under 3.1 and then a I486 under win95 then K6-2/upgrade to III and last of the oldies a Athlon XP i re switched to Intel with the C2D on my laptop (the PII PIII are either salvage from a dump or old part of the pc that my mother used for internet :D ) i got some Phenom Phenom II only one i5 and now the Xeon E3

i love both brand :D for GPU im all the same ... i don't care the brand: they both hold a place in my tech addict heart!

Yep, back in the AMD XP processor days I was all about AMD. Shit, Intel chips and boards were at least double the price and didn't perform as well as the AMD counterpart. I was strictly AMD well after the s939 era until the C2D's came way down in price. Once x58 came out it was pretty much all over for enthusiasts on the AMD side of things. A shame they couldn't keep up.

Now I haven't played with their new FX processors so I don't know how the new stuff performs in comparison with Intel.
