I can do that on my mobile phone, so you will have no issues doing that on 
an Atom. I use Atoms for VoIP/Asterisk servers. I have some with dozens 
times more than you're trying to achieve.

(very highly tuned and not an off the shelft type installation, but that's 
just me)

Get fanless board if you can. 1GB of RAM is fine if you're not running a 
GUI on it.
