Let me echo what Joe, KM1P, has said:
So for Linrad it will be hard to make a bad choice of "scrap" computer.
Choose the quietest one!
I fully agree! In my (admittedly fairly short) experience with Linrad,
I have found that differences in CPU load among the various FFT versions
are usually not very significant. For a single-channel, modest
bandwidth system, just about any >100 MHz computer will do.
If the experience of many others is any indication, getting everything
to run properly together -- Linux, svgalib, sound I/O, etc. -- is more
likely to be your problem than CPU speed.
