of course you can. Just install it without any doubt. – shantanu Jul 9 '12 at 12:53
@shantanu You may want to post this as an answer, perhaps somewhat expanded, with a reference. – Eliah Kagan Jul 14 '12 at 1:52

Yes, your PC is more than able to dual boot. Perhaps give a thought to Xubuntu, although I don't think that's necessary.

As for your second question -- HD is demanding. The fact that all newer PCs are able to effortlessly play it does not make it any less astoundingly resource intensive. Given your hardware, I estimate it's going to be difficult to get HD playing fluently. But -- that's no reason for not trying :)
