why not? Just make sure you have enough memomry , at least 6 or 8 Gb and fast disk raid. Put OS on mirror (2 disc's) and data on raid 5 (min. 3 disc's)

The stated minimum RAM is 8 GB and recommended is 10GB.  

Technically it wants a single Quad Core CPU, but a dual Dual-Core should be the equivalent, so I would expect it to be fine.

And incidentally, it WILL install with only 4GB of RAM, I have it running on a VM on my laptop with only 4GB assigned and it works perfectly :)
