I have 4.8 at work, and 5 at home.  I'm happier with 4.8 so far.  I keep
running into silly quirks that I have to take time to fix in 5, library
 issues, that sort of thing.  Basically I find myself wanting to reinstall with
4.8 on it.

I run a similar machine at work.  p4 2.4Ghz 512MB, 80GB. and it runs great.  I
gave myself 1GB of swap, and I rarely ever touch more than 40-50MB when I'm
really giving it a beating.

/    = 512MB, I'm current at 31% utilized
/var = 256MB, 38% utilized
/tmp = 256MB, 14% utilized
/usr = the rest...

I haven't seen much need to upgrade my RAM, though I don't run the K nor GNOME.
