How much processor do I need?

Hi everyone. We need to get a new computer for someone in my office (the boss). She mainly uses Word, e-mail and the web... nothing fancy.
We are on a network of about 20 computers of varying age, all Dells, with a new Windows 2000 server.
I seem to remember reading that for most people, processor speed above a certain number doesn't make any difference. So, my question is:
If I downgrade the chip from the "recommended" Intel Pentium 4 Processor 3.20GHz, 1M/800MHz FSB to Intel Pentium 4 Processor 2.80GHz, 512K/533MHz FSB, will that make any real difference? It'll save us over $200!
