Is this enough computer to do what I want to do?
You need a faster computer. You're especially going to notice poor DSD performance with that setup. DSD is very CPU "aggressive".

I'd suggest getting at least an Intel Core Duo 2.0 GHz or better. They are plentiful and cheap in the used market. I see well configured Intel Core Duo laptops selling for around $100 in pawn shops all the time.

My 5 year old Dell Studio laptop with a Core Duo 2.1 GHz does an awesome job running the full setup (SDR#, Unitrunker, DSD) and only tops out about 65% CPU utilization.
