This has been asked before and depends on lots of things.

1. How graphicaly intense is your game? 3D games spank the processor and video memory pretty hard.
2. How good is your connection to the internet? I'll say now that if you have dialup or even a slow cable/ADSL/satellite plan then the connection will not survive while doing both things.
3. How much memory does your machine have? I suggest 512MB as a minimum if you are a 'power user'.
