It will run, but you are treading close to the game's minimum requirements. The Pentium 4 is a really slow CPU that is likely to hold you back, especially in some of the larger engagements. Lots of units on screen consumes a lot of CPU power. You'll have to play around with the settings, but even with a good graphics card you probably won't get past medium.
