Can you help me pick a Linux distro?

I'm wondering if there's a specific distro that will breathe new life into my spare aging Dell WinXP machine...

This is a Dell Latitude C640
with minimal RAM. It is my workshop computer and is used for little more than streaming music and video off my NAS and occasional web browsing. It can do these things, albeit awkwardly, with it's original installation of XP Pro but I'm hoping to streamline things. I tried Ubunu 12LTS but it's choking on that (and not playing nice with the NAS, either...). There's obvious pauses between hovering over drop-down menus and their appearance, for example.
Any recommendations? Thanks!
