PC System Analysis for Borderlands
In the distant future, several colonization ships head to Pandora, a planet on the edge of the galaxy. The colonists are drawn there in search of a better life as well as vast mineral resources said to be on the planet, free for anyone's taking, akin to a futuristic gold rush. Some time after settling the colonists discover that there is little the planet offers, aside from some decrepit alien ruins. Those who have money leave, the remaining population devolves into chaos and lawlessness. Some of the settlers seek to get rich quick by discovering alien technology. Most others are just trying to survive. After seven earth years, the planet's slow orbit brings a transition from winter to spring, and many horrifying creatures emerge from hibernation.

The latest system requirements News for Borderlands
Oct-25-2009 Word on the electronic street is that certain unscrupulous street dealers have flagrantly ignored the release date for Gearbox's sci-fi shooter Borderlands, releasing it to the baying masses ahead of ...
Full system requirements for Borderlands reported on Oct-19-2009

There's been a fair bit of excitement around the imminent release of Gearbox's Post-Apocalyptic Drive-and-Shooter Borderlands, but it's this year's in thing for the powers that be to remain coy regarding system requirements. However, Steam appear to have the scoop on it. Borderlands is being built from the Unreal Tournament 3 engine, optimised to run on more 'digitally challenged' machines.

We've updated the Borderlands System Requirements on the GD game page, but for those of you too lazy to click on that there link, here are the system requirements precisely as they appear on the Steam home page:

 

System Requirements

  •  
    • OS: Windows XP/Vista
    • Processor: 2.4 Ghz or equivalent processor
    • Memory: 1GB System RAM (2GB recommended with Vista)
    • Graphics: 256mb video ram or better (GeForce 8 series or higher/Radeon R8xx series)
    • Hard Drive: 8 GB or more free space
    • Sound: Windows compatible sound card
Oct-04-2009 Borderlands is now available to pre-order via Steam, and even better, you can get 10% off if you follow this link here. Don't say we ain't never good to yers....

Yes, you can, i played it on Medium Settings but lowest resolution (640x400) in my old 8400gs thats waaaaaaaaaay weaker than your GPU, you probably can play on 1366x768 with almost Max Graphics 30+ fps

I can get 62 FPS Max and sometimes even as low as 30 in certain areas because of how dense it is. I say you could get around 20-30 FPS on low and in areas like Sledges Mine probably like 5-20 in all honesty :/
