The reason most people upgrade their computers is undoubtably because Windows runs like a bag of shit after it's been installed for a few months. If they simply tried reinstalling it, they'd be more than happy with their existing machine.
A Pentium 3 or 4 would be fine (if not overkill) for what most people do with their computers. The power of the current CPU's is absolutely ridiculous and does nothing but encourage people to use poor programming practices and produce bloated software.
