CPU  power is not a major issue, but memory is since X is a bloated pig.
You want at least 8MB of memory. ( if you have this little, you'll need a
lot of swap too ) IDeally, you should have 32MB memory. This is good
enough to run KDE / GNOME , though it will get a little slow if you load
huge pages in netscape.
