Computer Compatibility and Set-up

Can I run Virtual Drumline 2.5 with this setup and if not, what can I do to make it work without buying a new computer?

RealTek soundcards and basically bottom end (quality wise) devices that are OK for playing CDs and Youtube videos, but when using high end applications such as Finale/Sibelius with VDL 2.5 you can encounter a lot of latency or low quality playback.

Which one and why does it have to be ASIO compatible?
Yes, that system should be more then enough to run VDL alongside a notation/sequencer.  The only thing I would consider is an upgraded sound card, perhaps a pro audio card (M-Audio, Edirol, etc.) that is ASIO compatible.
