It'll work fine. Just won't be able to virtualize everything separately - you'll have to have it running on the base OS, which is fine for a home environment IMO.
Like I said, I have (well had, now) a Pentium 4 w/ 4GB of RAM running all that stuff I posted above just fine. Didn't start struggling until I put Plex on there and tried to encode movies. Now I switched that out for a C2D e8400 with 6GB RAM.
