You should understand that there's no difference if you're dual-booting with Windows 7 or not (well, maybe only in terms of disk space available) - the performance of the system will be the same as if Windows or Ubuntu were the only OS on the machine.
If you're happy with how Windows runs on the machine now, then it'll be no different after you install Ubuntu.
1 Gb of RAM is not a lot by modern standards, but it's more than Ubuntu's minimal requirements, so Ubuntu will run OK too.
