My system isn't even half as powerful as yours and gnome runs just fine
here - F11 x86_64.  In fact, I would call it snappy, menus open as fast
as I access them, system response is fast.  I *have* turned off many
services I don't use or need and I *am* using a custom compiled kernel.
But that shouldn't make that big a difference.
