I would recommend you run Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS, 64-bit. You have a slower hard drive, but suitable RAM and processor for this. You will need to configure graphic drivers, for optimum performance.


With that as a benchmark, you can then see if a LiveCD trial of Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit is any improvement. You will also need to configure graphic drivers, for optimum performance.
