Yes you will be able to play Doom3, but you will not be able to play on MAX settings.
Official minimum requirements from id are the following:
P4 1.5Ghz CPU (or equivalent).
384MB of RAM.
64MB graphics card (see below for chip details).
2GB of free hard drive space.
Lowest supported GPU is a Geforce 4 MX (worse than Geforce 3).
GF 4 MX.
GF FX (and higher).
Radeon 8500s, 9000s and higher
