It's an HP513C about 9 years old. 1.8GHz, 1 Gig of ram, 40 Gig HDD and I added a basic Nvida card about 6 years ago.
No way it will run Win 7 of any flavor.
I think it would, but as stated above, it's unlikely Aero would run. Depends on the card itself. I've installed Vista (yes, Vista) on computers with comparable specs to that one and it ran fine, so I think 7 would work well for you.
