This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

it might be that Ubuntu would be running slowly on your system. I think Ubuntu (with Unity) is too much too handle for your computer to run smoothly.

I recommend to check out Xubuntu or Lubuntu. It is basically Ubuntu with a more lightweight window manager. Those distros should run perfectly on your computer.
