Sufficient for what? What do you want to run on that computer? A 
workstation? A firewall? A mail server? Apache?

Assuming you want to run a work station I would recommend at least 256Mb 
or RAM. The more is the better. Your BIOS would probably see up to 512Mb 
RAM. CPU speed is more than enough .  I would use  at lest  6Gb  HD  
for  a work  station.

You computer would with above specifications would make a great thin 
client, firewall, home made router or  DNS  server.
