Hi Samir,

as you have recognized, linux or unix systems in general let you be freetoi decide
what you need, get what you need.

With a CPU like yours almost everything is possible ;-)
You could put more memory in your PC and (K)Ubuntu will run better than now.
But linux systems as they are like unix systems (files are handled differently) 
don't need much memory to work. Embedded linux systems are even smaller and work 
well in devices where you do not expect it.
