Read somewhere that if you have more than 4G of RAM, it should be okay.
As long as the machine is 64bit capable it will be fine. Most KDE distros have a recommendation for just 1GB of memory. What you read about is only relevant to a Windows system.

This is from the Ubuntu wiki:

All 64-bit (x86-64) CPUs should be fast enough to run Ubuntu and can run the 32-bit (x86) version as well. For an optimized installation (and especially for those wishing to run more than ~3 GiB of RAM) however, a 64-bit installation CD is available. The 32-bit version tends to be easier to use and runs into less problems.
Buy a Hoover and prove technology sucks.
