At first sight I would say yes.
If you want to invest extra ,go for extra RAM first (1GB even better 2GB)

Absolutely fine, assuming you don't pull all the sliders up to the highest setting. As Arniepie says, with the extra RAM you'll get even better performance, and it is very cheap these days.

Before investing extra money be sure that you make your virual memory big enough.(just a software setting)

Dragonair,
Our friend already has a 256MB videocard, I think that this is the most possible VRAM you can get at this moment.
