Hello Kala!

Have you managed to put your Autodock working?
A coworker has Autodock in a computer with the following specifications:
AMD Athlon 2000+ @ 1.67 GHz
512 MB of RAM
Geforce 4 MX 440
60 GB of hard drive (regular IDE)

All of the specs are worse than the computer you are using currently
except for the graphics card (which is a low end, worse than geforce
3, 5 year old, dedicated card).

She can perform everything related to AutodockTools and performed some
initial work with Autodock in Cygwin on that computer. For the real
work she is now using in a cluster so the calculations are (now!) run
on independent systems (the cluster is comprised of 2800+ processors).

So, the system you are using should be more than enough to do the work.
