I want to revive my old Pentium 4 3GHz, 1GB ram and 180gb slow HDD computer and I wanted some advice in what linux distro to use. I am familiar with Ubuntu but I wanted to try something different. Linux Mint or Xubuntu seem good options. What do you think?

Edit: I forgot to say that it has a 128MB video card, it isn't running with integrated GPU.

Thanks for your reply. Now the question is: MATE, Xcfe or KDE? Which one is the best performing?

Xfce will run best with older hardware; openbox or lxde are even lighter.
