who is "linux !! jd kayee"??? maybe you got ripped off.
But moving on PC age 2004...10 years old.
It had originally a radeon card which i changed to Nvidea Geforce 9600 gt (which has been trouble free when I use my 3D graphics
software programs like Daz Poser Carrara Bryce etc) Ram upgraded from 500mb to 2gb.
a) an old computer
b) an unusual setup
- it is definitely 100% possible to install linux on it!
(somehow i just don't think ubuntu 12.04 lts is the right one. maybe try sth from here
in any case, you have to expect some rough edges.
you might want to search for common problems with linux and your graphics card, for starters.
you might want to get aquainted to rescue mode and the command line.
