If sandbox is the only thing the computer is doing, the memory in that machine is overkill by about 22gb. 🙂 SARndbox can run “ok” on 1GB of system memory and an 8 year old 2 core CPU (specs here).

Sarndbox needs a good video card more than CPU. With your CPU you could go to the Nvidia 970 Oliver recommends, however on older machines like mine that would be wasted because the CPU can’t push to the GPU fast enough (ref); the cheaper GTX 750ti is alright — for my box.

Your FX580 video card will work, flowing water simulation might be sluggish. My advice is to go ahead and build the sandbox with what you have, and then upgrade the video card later if you the experience is not good enough. (If the new one is also Nvidia it’s an easy 5-10min switch.)
