Yes, but run Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to be aware of any issues.

Win7 is driver complete in the installer, with newer drivers delivered quickly after install via optional Windows Updates. Put your wireless or Ethernet driver on a stick or CD just in case, so you can get online quickly to get driver Updates.

After install I would only import any drivers missing in Device Manager. Do not change out drivers unless performance dictates doing so. Then get them from the Support Downloads webpage for your model device.

There are tips here for getting a perfect factory OEM clean reinstall which you can adapt to make your install best: Reinstalling Windows 7

You can download Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor (Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows) from Microsoft and run it. It will tell you if it is possible to install Windows 7 Ultimate on your system.

Otherwise off-hand from the configuration given, it seems to me that there should not be much of a problem except maybe for display of which you have not given any details.
