Looks like you will be able to just don't expect to run it top specs. Steam access is obviously only for activation and constant internet access is not going to be needed. Might want a little more RAM and a new vid card.

I checked it out, and found that I would run it with at least medium settings. Even medium surpasses xbox's graphics. So I am happy. :) Also, I'm gonna make it epic by connecting my xbox controller to the computer. On another note, anyone try playing sc1 on N64? Epic fail. XD
