Intel graphics adapters are not ideal for 3D graphics but they will work.  As mentioned, you'll probably not be able to run SL at much more than low settings in your preferences.  However, I have a good RL friend who has the same IGP you have and she can run SL at high settings (she experiences a good amount of texture lag but she doesn't mind......her frame rates are decent).  She also runs her computer without much background programs and she has quite a bit of system RAM (plus a fast quad core CPU).  You'll have to experiment to find settings you can live with...........so many things effect how any computer will run high end graphics programs.  One of the main things to be on the watch for is heat on that chipset........it will get hot and since it's part of the motherboard, you could get some serious damage (possibly burning up your motherboard).  I talked my friend into getting another case fan and hardware monitoring software.  If your computer is a laptop, get a cooling pad.
