Unless you're doing some kind of production work - and I can't imagine what that would be with a brad nailer - I think you'll be fine. You'll spend way more time thinking, clamping and scratching your head than you will shooting nails. I'd bet even a framing nailer won't tax that compressor, unless you're building pallets or running several nailers at the same time.
My compressor is mostly stationary, with a 30 gallon tank. I ran my framing nailer for several hours the other day (just me, not a crew) before I figured out the compressor wasn't even turned on.
Grinders, polishers, sprayers need big CFM. Most other tools are intermittent, and mostly run off the tank. Personally, I'd be more concerned about the fact that it's sold at Harbor Freight than the size. It's a disposable tool. By the time it wears out, you'll have a better idea of what you need.
