Is VPS good for a 50K UV traffic blog with ~ 200 concurrent users occasionally?

I'm looking at the following Hostgator VPS setup for my blog, can anyone tell me if it's good for a WordPress-based food blog that receives 50k UVs per month and occasionally hits ~ 200 concurrent users for 1-2 hours twice? Week when a new recipe comes to light. Each web page has about 4-5 MB each.
