I am using an AMD K6-200 with 64 megs. PD runs very nicely compared to the Windows version on the same system (but any faster system will do nicely ;-) )
You should perhaps consider which desktop environment you will use, since they take up very different amounts of power/ram. I am using KDE which is one of the most powerhungry environments for Linux - and it still runs fine.

Any full duplex card will do fine (the card should also have full duplex support Linux)
Check out the sound-howto and related files for further info.

I hope this helps!
