Specs: Windows XP Pro, -
Basically I've got this much older computer that the
specs in the manual state it takes 72-pin 80ns SIMMs.
Can I put in a 72-pin 60ns SIMM instead since that's all i
can find for a reasonable price at the moment.

There's no blanket answer for your question.

What is the manufacturer and exact model of your computer?

I've never had problems using 70 ns when it specified 80. I imagine 60's would work OK too. But if you've got one that's old enough to want 80's it may not accept higher capacity sticks--16, 32 or 64 meg. You may be stuck just using 4's and 8's. Check the manual to make sure.
