Is a PIII w/ 1GHz and 512MB fine for basic tasks?

I'm considering buying a cheap Dell Optiplex GX150 and am wondering whether it should be up to basic office home office tasks at the moment. The unit in question is a PIII w/ 1GHz 512MB.  

This should do fine for basic stuff (i.e., surfing & MS Word) now, right?

Office 2003 yes, Office 2007 not so much. But for Office 2003 and surfing the web, you should be just fine with that setup

Yes, it should just fine.
