Do the temperature, RMSD, pressure and visualization of popc-water system make me decide that it is a proper system or not?
None of those criteria are specific enough, in my opinion. Lipid-specific
metrics like area per lipid, membrane thickness, lateral diffusion, etc should
all be considered. There is a wealth of literature that exists about membrane
simulations from which you can draw ideas.
