It still works fine for the basics but if you start doing anything remotely intensive it starts slowing down. For a 10+ year old budget chip I would say it held up well.

Well still works fine with an SSD and a Linux . U cant run Windows for sure its a 10 year old system , but ye for things like making you own NAS or PfSense Box or Media Box its good especially with a low power motherboard
