You probably can't get legal license for VS 2008 any more, get VS 2012 Express editiion is free for both personal and commercial use. But I suspect your hardware isn't large or fast enough.

Here is a link to VS 2008 hardware requirements. I think you can use your current hardware

Here is the hardware and os requirements for visual studio 2012


for vs2008 win xp or 7 , and for vs2010 win 7 ,
just install vs your mssql server will auto installed with that setup , in case of vs2008 mssql 2005 will installed and in case of vs2010 mssql server 2008 will be installed.

after installation you just have install Mssql management studio .
