Hello, have a question. I have this Dell Dimention L700cx, it has a 700 megahertz Intel Celeron processor and right now 512 megabytes of RAM in it with a standard cd/rw drive, a standard floppy drive and a 10 gig hard drive. I can upgrade to a 20 gig if I have to. I named the computer Oliver, don't asked what possesed me to name it, I just like it that much, I guess. Can Oliver handle having Windows XP installed on him, or will it be slow as Christmas?

Xp will run fine on that machine. It will take about 3 GB's for the full installation, so you may want a larger drive. I think 512 is optimal for XP and should be plenty of RAM.
