Default quick question

My new system is complete ! Except... I can't find an 8800gt anywhere. (of course) So I was really hoping to fire this thing up asap, but the only graphics card I have here to sub for the missing 8800gt is a geforce4 mx 420 with 64mb. This is well below the sys req for windows vista home premium. My question is.. would it work well enough to load the OS(vista home premium 64bit) and play around a bit?
