Back of the Box
The galaxy is trapped in an endless cycle of extinction. Every 50,000 years, an ancient machine race invades the galaxy. With ruthless efficiency, the machines wipe out all advanced organic civilization. They leave behind only the scattered ruins of technology, destroying all evidence of their own existence.
Few believe this ancient legend. You, however, know it to be true. The fight to stop this extinction event has become the most important mission in the galaxy.
It is your mission. As Commander Shepard of the SS Normandy, you will take your elite recon squad across a galaxy in turmoil, in a desperate race to stop the return of an enemy without mercy. To stop this enemy, you must act without remorse, without hesitation, and outside the limits of the law. Your only imperative is to preserve the safety of civilized life in the galaxy - at any cost. You must become the tip of the spear of humanity, for you alone know the full extent of what is at stake if you should fail.

Lowest you can go more then likely, this game slightly struggled with the unreal engine so it probably uses more resources then it should but I would say you would get anywhere between 15 to 30 fps you may get a lot higher fps but I am not going to give you false hope. The consoles play this game with fps as low as 15 specially on the 360 version with heavy fire fights and driving the mako so I would assume you would get the same. The mako controls are by far better on mouse and keyboard as playing it on the 360 made it really hard to drive for me at least.

At your low resolution you should be able to get a playable frame rate at tweaked medium settings.
