The hardware mentioned would have no problem running Windows XP though you'd be limited to about 3.25GB of RAM if you use 32 bit. 64-bit of Windows XP doesn't have great driver support from what I've heard, so I wouldn't advise that.

Windows 7, 64 bit runs great in my machine.. and would utilize all of the memory mentioned.
