Intel Core i3-2310M and Intel HD Graphics 3000 can manage this game at Low settings, and get about 35-40 average FPS with all options off, so I think you can for High settings, or tweaked High to reach 35-40 average FPS, btw turn off AA and Vsync. :)

Yes, go with medium settings for good fps, you can put the textures to high, they won't cost a lot of fps.
