Quad core is best. Faster is better, especially later generations; Improvements in CPU architecture, Chipset, RAM speeds, SATA speeds (not all P55 mb supported SATA III and those through off chipset controllers), PCIe bandwidth & speed for GPU and possibly PCIe 4x SSD.
16GB or more of RAM
GTX550Ti will work, GTX1050 or GTX1050Ti better (faster rendering)
SSD drive for OS and primary programs (min 240GB) PLUS a fast large hard drive like the WD Black 1TB or larger for storage greatly improves things. When Loading and saving files is not slowed down by accessing different parts of the program or the program's paging file on the same drive, it helps a lot.
Of course price here is the limiting factor but there might be deals on decent systems with CPU's only 2 generations back that might make the base for the machine with a few improvements.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Always remember that "requirements" are just that...just what it takes to get the software running. Likely, to run it well you'd need a bit more...

Well technically I can bump the CPU to 3.5 Ghz , with 1600Mhz Ram , not sure how this will hold up ?

"...I can bump the CPU to 3.5 Ghz , with 1600Mhz Ram..."

I don't believe speeds are the critical issue here (though more speed doesn't hurt). Note that it states:

Core™2 Duo or AMD Phenom® II processor; 64-bit support required

4 GB of RAM (8 GB recommended)

If the unit meets those requirements (especially the 8GB RAM), then there shouldn't be a real problem. Also appears that a pretty hefty size HDD is necessary as well. Given all that, your client may be better off with a newer system than just upgrading their current one...

Well for the Price , I could put together a Lynnfield or Possibly a Kavieri A-10 with Dedicated GPU

My question is really ; will it run OK , or would there be a significant struggle ?

Simply: It will run.
i5-Quad core, GTX550Ti, 16GB RAM, SSD - no problem. Add the second hard drive, mild OC, and they will be fine.
Anything higher, faster, or more recent will probably perform better as long as nothing is much lesser.
My daughter ran Photoshop, 3d Design Autocad, and other design software on a laptop that I helped custom configure on HP's site with an i5-Intel, GTX950M graphics, 16GB RAM, and only one hard drive and it ran well (still does). Her newer one is much lighter, has a newer graphics chip, newer generation i5 Quad Core and still only one HD due to the size and weight limits she set and runs even better.

"Well technically I can bump the CPU...."

The hardware you listed exceeds the requirements:
Core i5-760 > Core2 Duo or AMD Phenom II
16GB RAM > 8GB
GTX 550 Ti is just one tier below GTX 285

In other words, you already have what you need.
