Currently Installing Gentoo, Which is more stable Gnome or KDE ?


I'm installing Gentoo, but I'm hesitating on which Desktop Environment to install. My computer has a pretty slow processor , but it's able to run Ubuntu 12.04 perfectly:

AMD E-450 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 2
4 GB Memory RAM

I don't know if my desktop is able to handle KDE4.

This is a preference style question, most guis are "stable" but which one do you like best. I would recommend Cinnamon or KDE but thats just my personal preference.

You should have no problem running KDE4, I've seen it run on systems with 1GB RAM and a much worse graphic setup and it was still fluid and usable.
