Should be fine :)

It might get a bit choppy if doing pvp/starbase defence on high graphics settings sometimes, but that's the particle systems for you - I'm pretty sure most people have that issue.

I used to run sto on a laptop with 2,1ghz dual core (core2duo), 3 gb ram and a graphics card with 256mb dedicated +768mb shared ram, and that went fine on medium settings. And that's worse than both your current and your proposed systems :)

There is a website that can scan your computer & determine if it meets the minimum and recommended requirements for specific products or games like STO.
