Yes.  Although ....

8 GB would be preferable - memory is cheap, stick another 4 GB in.

For a desktop system, I'd want a 4 core CPU with at least 6 MB cache instead of this 2 core CPU with 3 MB cache.  But if this is a laptop it's sufficient.

It would work just great ...i even had 2020 and it was more than sufficient...besides "normal" OS operations (Office,VS,Surfimg)occassionally i was running a couple of VMs just fine  ...the only -critical - difference was the SSD...this alone can make even mediocre systems working great

post a bit more info - what model motherboard - or pc is this? - and what disk model ?
the throughput depends on the bus speed, and disk transfer speed also

if you want to run a fast system - just swap your harddrive for an SSD - they're becoming rather cheap nowadays

these are  Windows 7 system requirements by Microsoft Support:                    By me to run smoother:

1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor                          3 GHz  or higher  (x64)  

1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)                                                           at least 4GB

16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)                                            at least 150 GB
