The previous type of memory to DDR was SDRAM, which came in PC-66,
PC-100 and PC-133 speeds. PC-66 was mid-1990s, roughly, PC-100 late
'90s and PC-133 around the turn of the century. So it's possible but
that would be a >10Y old PC.

In my experience, XFCE is not much lighter-weight than GNOME or Unity
(although it does not require hardware 3D). LXDE (and Lubuntu) are the
main lightweight alternative now, I think.
