Depends on the CPU. For a P4 1.8, TF is undercredited.

P4s were real crap at TFing exps to <64 bits. So LMH shouldn´t be considered at all. For regular TF, as several people have been pointing out, we are currently very well served, should I say overpowered.
And for the moment we are real short of DCers. As Kevin pointed out, a DC won´t take THAT long on a P4 1.8, so even for an "impatient" participant, such a PC would be suitable. Although P-1 could also be considered, I personnaly would encourage a P4 1.8 owner to join the (scarce) ranks of DCers.
