well at that speed it's up to you. But I guess if you want my opion go with Debian, Slackware or Gentoo. All 3 are fast and can be made slip lined so you can save resources. Say off the ubnutu because right now it's a work horse and sucks up the computer. If you can wait go with Gentoo and then you'll have about the most speed you can get. To note anyother good Linux distro's I've tired Arch and it was great that could be a go ahead to.

The limit I would say you have is the ram so just use a nice sized swap and you'll be fine
:-)

Thanks
