Hi Richard,

Yes it will run but you have Minimum spec requirements there for P3D v4.
You can look at this page for the recommended spec suggested by LM.

You should be ok with that, but don't expect to be able push your sliders too far to the right.

TBH, P3Dv4 can run on a PC with a spec lower than the minimum requirements. It's all about knowing the limitations of your graphic settings. I always found I could run P3D on my underpowered laptop, and get reasonable framrates (rarely going below 20FPS). I would start out by setting every single graphical option to it's absolute minimum, to give myself a starting point. Then I would load up a complex airliner at a busy airport. I'd keep an eye on my framerate, and gradually start increasing settings 1 at a time, keeping an eye an the frame rate counter.
