Default Might build a linux box

basically i have a few things spare lying around from various builds , i have a case , motherboard cpu and spare hdd lying around , its nothing special case is an old black and silver one and the mobo is a s478 with a 1.8ghz celeron 40gb hard drive but my plan is to build a linux box to play with linux for a bit without needing to start messing with partitions on my main box

then when we go to uni nxt year i will prolly give it to my sister or my gf .
what i need to buy
  • KVM-so i can use my current keyboard and screen etc
  • PSU-only a cheap one
  • Bit more ram , only have 1 128mb stick at the moment
  • long enough lan cable to reach the router downstairs
I have a few questions ,
does anyone know if they have kvm systems tha also have sound on them as well cos i would like to share the speaker system between the 2

and how much ram to run ubuntu or another linux distro smoothly
Desktop-AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+-2GB Elixer DDR2 800 250gb+500gb+500gb+120gb
Laptop-Apple Macbook Pro 13" Intel core i5(2.3ghz) 4gb Ram 320gb hard drive
