Barely. You’ve got a single core CPU though fast enough will be overloaded by the minimum RAM and GPU. So that your machine won’t get bogged down, you should at minimum have a Duo-Core 2.6Ghz or better (a quad-core 2.4 or higher), 4 – 8* GB of RAM (*you can only get 6 or more recognized by Windows by converting to 64-bit) and a GPU (NVIDIA or comparable) series 8800 or later (and you might want to consider more than 1.) Don’t forget plenty of harddrive space for all of those graphics, video and audio to be stored as well.
