Ok, I took a test online and it recommended me:

Ubuntu
Linux Mint
Mandriva
Kubuntu
OpenSuSE
Fedora

Unsure on the wisest choice

Your computer can run any of them easily but from personal experience and reviews from others, I would suggest ubuntu or mint. Ubuntu is good and mint is almost the same thing but mint is more for a beginning linux user.

I'd go with Linux Mint or PCLinuxOS. Mint is way better than Ubuntu.
