Can't tell you about the freebsd version, but my personal favour for a
slim and really fast GUI is enlightenment...
from my knowledge it's designed and tested for machines of this power (I
read a note by one of the main developer that he's testing it on a
150MHz to see if it performs).

it's a little playtime to setup it up, since you can configure almost
everything. but it's really neet, has some nice eye-candy and is fast
too... my absolute favorite and it boosted my productivity (after 2
weeks of configuring&customizing) to a level no other GUI in this world
can give me...

but just my 2 cents ;-))
