Will you be able to play WHAT?

You posted minimum and recommended systems specs, but you didn't say WHAT they're for.

All of the Cyberpunk 2077 sites that I checked recommend a solid state drive(SSD) and not a hard disk drive(HDD).

Even if you're not a gamer, using a SSD instead of a HDD will noticeably increase speed and snappiness in your computer.

The only way you're going to know if you can play it in a HDD is to try.

Hopefully, your computer doesn't have a brand/model HDD which has a low performance rating.

SSD's tend to have much higher performance ratings than HDD's.

In your attachment it clearly states....recommend, which means that you can in fact use a standard HDD. That said....you game play will be laggy and sluggish. It would be like the old DVD game consoles when they first came out......where certain points in the game has to load to continue game play which pauses the game. This is why they recommend using a SSD. There's just to much data moving for a standard HDD to keep up. It's the way of the future.

I strongly suggest upgrading your HDD to SSD......now days you can get a 500GB SSD for $50 (SATA SSD's).

Just curious; what are you system specs?
