Welcome to Linux, tjmac19! I see this is your first post and your indicated OS is Windoze. Viewing the specs on your machine, I see no reason installing most any linux distro would present a problem. The biggest problem in doing so I have seen lies in obtaining a clean install initially.
To do so requires wiping the hard drive completely with zeros then partitioning. Go here http://sourceforge.net/projects/systemrescuecd/files/
and download version 1.3.4 or 1.3.5, burn to CD at slow rate (no more than 8X). SystemRescueCD has all you need to do a clean install.
Would suggest you try the latest i386 version of Xange http://sourceforge.net/projects/xange/files/
(info here http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=xange
), as well.
In any case, enjoy!
