I've only answered on components I am sure of - the rest I do not know about.

 

Intel Core 2 Duo T5600 @ 1.83 GHz

This is a compatible processor.

 

Intel GMA 945M with 224MB RAM

You may have some trouble getting your computer to display your native resolution. I have the same graphics chip and I was able to get it running in 1280x800. It took a lot of work though, as the GMA series is not supported - You will need modified kexts. Tough, not impossible.

 

Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG

 

Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit PCI Express Ethernet Controller

This wireless card is not supported, you will need either a new card or a USB adapter for WiFi. On the other hand, the Broadcom Ethernet Controller should work with a wired connection.

 

As for the rest of your components, hopefully others can give you more information.
