These are my specs and I want to know if these are some good specs to use for everyday use and surfing the internet. I don't want anybody trolling me because I do not have the best computer. This is an old computer and this is the best I have for now and I do not have the money for a new computer.

Everyday use is a relative term, but for web browsing you should be able to get by. It barely meets requirements for windows 7, but It would work. I say go for a RAM upgrade. 2GB you can probaly get for under $20. Anyone can istall RAM, its easy.

if you are not gaming, and mainly doing web use and other basic tasks then it will be enough (wont handle HD flash, but if you can get h.264 or xvid content then you can easily do 1080p video since you will get GPU usage).

For browsing the internet, watching videos and maybe a little Doom 3, it's fine. Though I would suggest an upgrade of ram to at least 2GB.

Bring it up to 2-4 gigs f ram like the other mentioned. Since your doing basic browsing and what ever else it should be fine. Most of my older computers have at least 1-2 gigs of ram depending on the model of computer and their memory capacity on them. Memory is cheap to upgrade on computers these days. And can be easily found at the local computer stores.

In my opinion, yes however as almost everyone else has stated a RAM upgrade would be useful.
