You'd be better off with a new system with modern components. An old system won't simply do it especially with the slow processors. Finding a processor upgrade would be a pain and I doubt that an obsolete processor would even handle Windows 7 without any slowdowns. Your current Pentium III is likely a Socket 370/Slot 1 processor which has long been discontinued.

The fastest processors are the last P3 and Celeron which are both clocked at 1.4GHz. (Not worth upgrading)
ARK | Intel® Celeron® Processor 1.40 GHz, 256K Cache, 100 MHz FSB

You'll need a Slotket in case you're using Slot 1 if you're planning to upgrade the processor. You could upgrade your graphics if your board has an AGP slot. Anything like the Geforce 6200/6600GT or AMD HD3000/4000 series would be perfect but AGP cards are in legacy support so you'll have no new major drivers.

As for the RAM you should consult your board documentation, chances are that it supports around 512-768MB of RAM. Should be SDRAM or DDR1.

you should be able to open the tower and remove the cpu fan and the socket type should be written on the white plastic around the cpu ,if its a intel ,it will likely be a socket PPGA 370
all the cpu says is ADM

A 700 Megahertz processor CAN run on a windows 7 OS.

By the way, I ran Windows 7 Ultimate on my old pc:

Intel Pentium III 800MHz
1GB DDR
NVIDIA GeForce FX5900XT
450W PSU
120GB HDD

and runs like a charm.

that doesn't add up !

you need to find out from the motherboard manufacturer ,how much ram it will take ,some of the older board with 3 slots only worked with 256 in each slot ,some worked with 512 in each slot .your just wasting time guessing ,you need to get the motherboards model # to search and see what it will take for ram
