    It should. I had a computer with the same configuration. It was Pentium 4 and I chose 500GB for a start. It worked fine. But, this is around 7 years old story.

    The fact is, Pentium 4 can work on a 500GB HDD, but it cannot deliver performance as good as a dual core CPU. Consider a whole system upgrade if you can. Then upgrade the HDD as well.

    I would recommend Core i3 (at least), 4GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB HDD, and ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 motherboard. I few things might seem big. But, will be good. Also, keep in mind that 4GB RAM is the minimum for future usage. And, keep it in Dual mode.

    It depends on your pentium processor which means if you have pentium I processer than it will not support .so that means Pentium iv will absolutely support your 500GB hard disk
