If you can run windows, you can run svn. But to qualify that a little more: I presume you're asking about server requirements (not client requirements.) I recommend using svnserve (I believe collabnet distributes a simple installation package) I recommend svnserve if all your access will be from an internal private LAN and you don't need per-folder ACL's and so forth. svnserve is very lightweight and fast, very easy to install and configure, but it's non-encrypted so I wouldn't recommend facing it to the internet. If you need to face the internet, you're probably going to need to run apache and https (or svn+ssh, but I think apache https is better)... Configuring the encryption and all takes a lot more complexity. So you really just need to spec your server as if it were a web server.
Be aware, sometimes svn will need to do a long time serial processing. So it's advantageous for you to have more than one CPU core.
