well your i7 isn't a bottleneck that's for sure. With intel hd 2000 graphics i would say you should tweak around the area of medium to low settings in 1024x768 or 800x600 resolution. You should see a good fair 30-50 fps as this game is well optimized for intel graphics.

also if this is the only game you happen to play and want to max it out, the minimum to max it would be with an nvidia gt 650.

If its the MSI GeForce GT 730 1GB GDDR5 OC, you can run it at medium-high settings 60fps (1366x768). CPU is quite a bottleneck.
