openSUSE11.0 on athlonXP 1.74 GHz desktop.


is it suitable if i used athlonXP 1.74 GHz to install OPENSUSE11.0 ? It has 32MB VGA , 256 RAM , 40GB IDE HDD. installed kde3.5 but I found it's heavy to my PC. so I use XFCE.

With the heavyweight environments, more ram would be better, but if you are happy with what you have, then there is little point in changing anything.

If you like to use Kde 3.5 wiht 256 RAM that is possible , but 256 RAM is using KDE really the minimum , it would be better if you can upgrade to
526 RAM
XFCE is better , it might be usefull to try LXDE too , if it works on youŕe system
