Yes, it will work, no problem. The problem systems for Chimera are 
computers that just have Intel motherboard graphics, but current Intel 
graphics drivers are *much* better *if* they are available (and they are 
still underpowered graphically). Other problem systems are laptop 
systems, because, historically, the graphics drivers are rarely updated 
with bug fixes -- many newer systems let you update the driver with ones 
from the graphics vendor (e.g., AMD/ATI or NVIDIA).

Enjoy your new system,
