UltraScope does not need much from the PC except PCIe bus to transfer data to the graphics card which then uses hardware OpenGL calls (if I understand right) to do that thing it does.

So your PC is totally fine - a lesser machine will do - however it's hard to say up front if there might be some sort of a compatibility issue as I am sure BMD hasn't tested that particular machine or motherboard type.

The GTS420 graphics card may be fine - it seems to support hardware OpenGL - but no guarantees unless someone actually tried it. For one of my clients, ATI Radeon HD 3450 didn't work (no hardware OpenGL), GeForce 8800GTS did even though it's not formally supported by BMD.

So the Dell Vostro 460 will most likely be fine; you may have to replace the GTS420 with something else.
