You will be able to run Windows 7 32-bits just fine. However, you graphic card is considered legacy by nVidia (nVidia GeForce FX 5500). They have drivers for Windows Vista that should work on Windows 7.
Go ahead, you won't regret it!
Note : On a 40GB hard drive, you'll only have ~25 GB left after install. Please, take note of that
