    I have to say it would run it very easy and quickly, I have the game for my Laptop which you can see in my Spec (On My Profile), it runs a Large Database with about 20 Playable Leagues and about 40 other countries players loaded no problem at all and I only have 25% of your RAM (512Mb).

    Here is the Spec for Football Manager 2008

    Recommended Spec
    * Windows XP,
    * 1.2 GHz Processor,
    * 256 MB RAM,
    * 4x CD/DVD-Rom Speed,
    * 750 MB Free Hard Disk Space Required,
    * Sound Card Required (Direct X 8.1),
    * Graphics Card (Windows Compatible)

    You could probably run way more then me, I wouldn't be surprised if you could run 40-50 leagues on a Large Database and Load a lot of the other Countries Players.

    The Best thing to do to see how much you can run is try certain configurations till you see a sweet spot. I would suggest you start with 30 Leagues and a Large Database to see how it runs and then go back and start a game again and increase the Leagues again if it was running quickly.

    But I find 20 Leagues is more than enough to manage Teams in.

    Hope this helps.
