Sweet, that's my setup too :)
I was running a P3 (around 800mhz) machine with 526MB memory filled with services some time ago and mangband worked quite good too. I think the general advice should be "if your hardware is <= 25 years old, you would be fine" :) The code hasn't changed that much since the old days. Plus PWMang offers optimizations! (Altho it's host OS of choice is known to be resource-hungry). But it's all moot, anyway, you could probably get it running on a refrigerator.
