That computer should handle either version perfectly well. It is just a matter of your preference.

Hello reborn777,

regarding to desktopenvironments like Gnome (Ubuntu) or KDE (Kubuntu) or XFCE (Xubuntu) I'd recommend to take a look at the graphics-hardware of the old computer. At least KDE (the recent releases) needs a relatively recent graphicsadapter. XFCE doesn't use that much resources, so it may be that Xubuntu is the better choice for you.

You may post the output of
Code:
lspci
so we can check which graphics-adapter you have.

Note that most likely the system can also be installed in the 64bit version.

Markus

I don't disagree with stress_junkie's answer, I think it is correct. I may be inclined to use lubuntu or xubuntu.

Your system is kind of on the fence in my opinion. In a few ways it is pretty good while in others it might be lacking. I guess you can easily try ubuntu an see how well you like it but later you may have some slowness.
