I use KLibido for my binary groups. It's quite good and I'm happy with  
it. When opening a newsgroup with thousands of posts it needs some  
time (10 seconds and more on my machine), the interface is frozen and  
unusable then but I think the downloads are still running.
I don't know if it's a good choice for a older computers, I haven't  
checked but I think it eats quite a bit of RAM. But worth a try
