Your computer can keep up with whatever vista throws at it.

I have a 3.0 P4 with only 1gig of ram, and I still run it smooth, so you can no doubt.

I was able to have Vista to run on my AMD 1333MHz rig, so yours won't have a problem handeling it.

My P4 3.0 also runs, but require an immediate SiS AGP controller driver update or it will lock up.
