No, as long as it meets the requirements for xp.

Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP Home Edition
•PC with 300 megahertz (MHz) or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233-MHz minimum required;* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
•128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
•1.5 gigabyte (GB) of available hard disk space.*
•Super VGA (800 × 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor
•CD-ROM or DVD drive
•Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device

Plus, you will need xp drivers for all your hardware, like video,sound,network,etc.

You would need at least 256Mb of RAM and a 1Ghz processor for the computer to run decent.. running XP on the min requirements will be very slow.
