Well, it looks like your PC can do the job, the only thin is that your videocard isn't in the list of suported ones, but I cannot imagine that X700 wouldnt do the job, to be exactly sure, I reccomand you this: G oto Gamespot.com, search for Doom3 for PC, and click on the button to check if your PC is up to scratch.

yup youll be fine, i reccomend quake 4 over doom 3 i never liked doom3 theres a point where dark and atmospoheric becomes annoying and detracts from the game, its safe to say they crossed the point fairly quickly, like 3 minutes into the game quickly.
