Official DOOM3 Hardware Guide

HardOCP produced the official DOOM3 hardware guide. Naturally, it covers the latest and greatest hardware. More importantly for most normal people who don't have several grand burning a hole in their wallets, they also talk about playing the game with a bare minimum system. The results are quite promising. Here's a snip from that page:

There is no doubt that DOOM 3's minimum system specifications can easily deliver a good gaming experience. We found it simply incredible that a system this old could run DOOM 3 at all, much less run it well. It may be hard to believe, but we can honestly recommend spending $50 on DOOM 3 if you have a system comparable to this. You can still have a very worthy DOOM 3 experience with it.

My box is slightly better in the CPU and memory departments and significantly better in the video card department. I'm quite hopeful. If nothing else, the guide will help you plan your next upgrade. Let's face it, there's no real reason to upgrade a gigahertz+ box except to play DOOM3 or Half-Life 2 unless you are editing video.
