Everything except fo the graphics card are sure to work. The integrated graphics card may give you issues in terms of performance and possible compatibility. I am unsure if it has Pixel Shader 2.0 but it is DirectX 9.0C compatable.

Your computer uses an integrated graphics card that is quite limited in capability, if you want to increase capability you require a dedicated graphics card. However, this is an issue for most computers used in an office due to their limited capabilities. Go, start, run, type in dxdiag, save all information and post here.
