I would suggest a clean install with 10.04, or if you have problems
with codecs and videos and so on, Linux Mint 9, which is basically
Ubuntu 10.04 with added multimedia support.

But the spec of your machine is quite good and it should run Windows 7
quite well. The 32-bit version would be fine with 3GB of RAM. Although
I personally prefer Ubuntu, Windows 7 is actually pretty good in most
ways and is a decent operating system. If you go to www.ninite.com you
can install most of the free applications that come with Ubuntu, so
you can have Windows but with all open-source applications software
without paying a penny for anything except the O.S. itself.
