Should be fine, but keep two things in mind
1) EQ2 reportedly has a horrid memory leak - Therefore, although you have plenty of RAM to run 2 EQ2's, it may run out of RAM after a period of time playing because of the leak. Restarting EQ2 periodically when RAM is low
2) WinEQ's FPS/CPU limiting feature is only available to subscribers (except for EQPlayNice, of course, which works for EQ1) - Therefore, performance will feel like dual boxing EQ1 before EQPlayNice came along. It'll work, but might be a little sluggish at times
