It really depends on what desktop you want to use. At a guess, I'd say you want to use Cinnamon, which requires only 512MB of RAM, 5GB free HDD space and a 700MHz CPU to run with a minimum resolution of 800x600. KDE, on the other hand, requires 2GB RAM, 10GB HDD space and the same CPU clock speed to operate at a minimum resolution of 1024x768.
