Boot from live cd and check unity /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p askubuntu.com/questions/69466/… –  Qasim May 22 '13 at 3:28
    
Maybe you can use gnome-fallback inside of unity. Less requirements, but less cute things too. –  ssoto May 22 '13 at 7:14

Yes, it should be usable on that system, depending on your graphics card. Personally I would use lubuntu or xubuntu because those run faster on older systems. Be very careful when partitioning. My advice would be to get a a second hard drive. It has saved my a lot of pain for the little that it cost me.

Or instead of lubuntu or xumbuntu install gnome-shell and use Gnome classic environment. I have done so on very similar pc and it works very well. –  Misery May 22 '13 at 6:09
