    I suspect it'll run, well crawl. Your main issues I'd have thought would be a lack of RAM and a serious lack of graphics capability.

    Have to ask though, why would you want to run such a high end app on such a low-end machine? A Smoke Artist can bill £400 an hour, post houses £500, a weeks work alone will cover the bridging loan for buying a loaded Mac Pro.
