Just wondering if anyone has taken these old workstations and upgraded or remodeled them into a machine running Windows 7 professional? 

I inherited a couple as projects and I am wondering after I wipe the hard drives, what would be the best image to deploy?

They both currently have 4G of memory, and a Pentium 4 3.80 CPU.

I want to keep the cost to a minimum.

Thanks!

If you wanted to go the free route, you could use a flavor of Linux, and there are even images specifically meant for machines with older specs. With 4BG of RAM and that Pentium, I think you would be fine running Win7, maybe you could just try one out and see how it goes.
