KDE's software consists of a large number of individual applications and a desktop workspace as a shell to run these applications. You can run KDE application just fine on any desktop environment. KDE applications are built to integrate well with your system's components. By using also KDE's workspace, you get even better integration of your applications with the working environment while lowering system resource needs.
KDE runs fine on most semi-modern PCs. While built with modern hardware in mind, KDE will run fine even on on older machines with more constrained resources since it degrades nicely.
