In my experience, you've got more than enough hardware there to do many things.

I made tons of music with softsynths on top of softsynths, plugins, etc, on a 2007-era Asus Core2Duo at 2Ghz with 2GB RAM. Much of that music was posted here. I also mixed a band CD using that same hardware. And I used it as a live synth for a few years too.

The key is to get a low-latency kernel. At the time (2007) I had to homegrow that stuff, but nowadays it seems AVLinux is the easiest to set up with that.

The latency I got with my low-end FastTrack Pro USB interface was 3 periods at 128 each, 44.1khz. More than goood enough for recording/mixing/softsynths, and totally reliable, never glitched on me once after I got everything dialed in.
