I haven't booted CentOS 7 on one, but I think it should work ok (CentOS 7 will boot fine on fairly old Opteron ok, and I don't think C7 requires the NX bit, but I reserve the right to be wrong).

From my recent experience, CentOS 7 struggles on the Dell Optiplex 620, and even the later 755 model.

OTOH, CentOS 6.x runs quite fine ... that's the RD machine I just fired up last week here on a cast-off 755.  

Also, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS works quite zippily (if I can coin that word) on the 755.  Most of the ~25+ Optiplex 620s I'm about to get rid of at work (as freebies!) have leaking capacitors on the motherboard, even though they power on and seem to work.  I've figured that they're not worth my time without the proper desoldering station to recap them.
