From my personal experience... I would say Xp. I mean you have good enough specs for vista maybe some more ram. But I would go with xp.

If you got another 1GB ram (that would make 2GB), vista would run great. It would still be ok with 1GB, but I've never had less than 2GB ram with an actual permanent vista install.
