Linux is just an OS that anyone can use. That CPU ill be fine, just make sure your other computer parts don't bottle neck your system, so that way your computer will be fine with any OS.

It will work with any intel or AMD CPU, pretty much, and yours is fast enough. It's compatible with pretty much any modern motherboard.
