Any box will do, make it as cheap as you want.  The only box I own is
running testing, so a bit heavier load even, and is a Pentium-mmx
166MHz, 92Mb of RAM, 7Gb hard disk, a 16bit graphics card with 2Mb of
momory, some standard stuff like floppy, cdrom and network cards -all
about the crappiest one can get.  Oh yeah, I even have a soundcard, some
original soundblaster iirc.
Anyway, this is much lower spec than you can currently find anywhere on
the market I suppose so don't be to worried...  I must admit my GNOME2
is sometimes a bit slow, but it all still is fine as it is the only
computer I have and still makes me happy.

Have fun
