Best Window Manager ?

Everyone ! I have a question. I am trying to decide on the Best Window Manager for my computer. It is not very fast. Please see the specs below. I really don't like Gnome or KDE they bog down my system. I have had pretty good sucess with Fluxbox. But I am looking for some Eye Candy. But I still want the speed. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Debian Box:
P-II 233 Mhz
160 MB RAM
40 gig HD
G-Force 4 AGP 64 MB DDR
Debian Libranet Classic 2.7

I hope this helps you out.

Heh, similar specs to my computer
I like Fluxbox.

Just keep using Fluxbox for a couple of months, then Openbox 3 will come out.
It's looking very nice

WindowMaker is a lightweight window manager, have nice graphics, menus, workspaces, clips, simple to configure... it's great
