It's not a good idea, no. Your graphics card is insufficient, and as you can see on the chart here, the nVidia 61xx series is listed as "no" right across the board. Your processor may or may not be fine (hard to tell as you have only given us the speed, not the model), the RAM is low, and your graphics card is very underpowered, and not supported for TS3. It's a bad idea, Don't do it.
