It will handle 10 no problem. However you are not going to get it for FREE. It is gonna cost.

You have stick on a window 7. Because following things required to upgrade window 7 to 10:
Processor: 1 GHz or faster.
RAM: 1 GB (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
Free hard disk space: 16 GB.
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver.

Save yourself a long upgrade attempt: You'll surely run into incompatibility warnings saying you should abort pursuing a Windows 10 upgrade.
Do note how quick Window$ $upport site suggests you BUY some $800--plus expensive NEW computer already running Windows 10; as with any corporate entity--it's ALWAY$ about the $$$$money, money, money$$$$.
Most driver corporates KNEW their products were incompatible TWO OR MORE YEARS BEFORE Micro$oft's "end of service" for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020;they simply kept quiet.....SURPRISE!!
All isn't a total loss however: You can run on Microsoft Security Essentials safely till 2023. You also can either buy or use a good reputable anti-virus scanner/clean up service to do the job Micro$oft Windows 7 people no longer want to provide.
Also worth advising: Ignore the Asian or Mid East accented callers trying to con you out of your $$$$ or Social Security number,while offering to "continue" your Micro$oft service account. MicroSoft NEVER uses tele-callers.

There are those that say run one of the Linux distro's on it. It is vastly more secure and there are flavors that can run on old hardware. There are way too many opinions on the web for which distro. Today, they install well and have are about as easy to use as windows... depending on the distro.

If you want your computer to be technologically advanced then windows 10 is better than windows 7 but at the same time the smooth surfing that you get in Windows 7 you might not get it in windows 10. So, now it totally depends what you want to do keeping in mind these things.

It will easily run Windows 10, and Windows 7 has run out of support. If your old PC can't handle Windows 10, then by all means stay with Windows 7, but yours can handle it.

Stick to win7. I also have a similarly old computer that still runs with XP. No problem!

That's not that old. Stick to W7. Install more RAM & a bigger SSD.
