This game is very poorly optimized. I suggest that you all go in the Low/Medium/High range instead of maxing it.

My graphics card is 82% above the recommended requirements and your GPU is 600% better than mine so yeah your CPU also exceeds the system requirements. So yes you can run it.

Probably medium or high but with a very playable it might lag on high but not 100% sure the palit GT630 2gb should run it. You do know that card was discontinued though? And buying second hand essentially means no warranty, think carefully.

You can. At least on med settings with your resolution, possibly on high as you don't need too many FPS in this game.
