    Welcome to the forums!

    You can check the link in my signature for lots of good information to get you started with Linux. Lots of new users start out with Ubuntu, but you don't have to start there.

    Have fun with Linux!

    It should run fine on it. If you want something lighter, you can try Xubuntu instead.
