Thats plenty of power, I demonstrated ardour, JAMin and treqtweak at an
expo recently on an 800MHz laptop using the internal soundcard (I thought
it was running at 1.2, but messed up).

You need at least 256MB of ram, preferably 512, but that kind of setup is
fine for RT audio.

If oyu particularly want to use offline processing I would recommend you
look at ecasound, but it has a bit of a learning curve.
