Back of the Box
It is the middle of the 16th century in Medieval Japan. The country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. The player takes on the role of one Daimyo – the clan leader – and will use military engagements, economics and diplomacy to achieve the ultimate goal: re-unite Japan under his supreme command and become the new Shogun – the undisputed ruler of Japan. Set during the golden age of Samurai warfare, Shogun 2 brings to life the most turbulent period of Japanese history.

Dont worry, BUY it, you can play low at 1280x720 res for 30-40 fps or more. Perhaps medium at 800x600 res for 40-55 fps.

Bring that resolution down to 1366x768 and it'll run fine at high settings. Try Direct X11, it seems to run more smoothly than DX9

@Watrevir he can't run it at high. Run it at medium for playable frames.

Depends what you call playable frames. On balance my rig is similar and I run it at High with a bit of lag on GFX intensive scenes (with Darth Mod). I can live with that but medium would certainly give you smooth FPS.
