Low-medium around 30FPS and might have to lower res. I'd recommend a GPU upgrade first but more ram does help.

You should be able to run it with your graphics card and the 4 GB would definitely help but you CPU is lagging behind. You may be able to get by on low.

Think I could max it with 60+ fps except in crowded areas of course? or boss fights? Really considering buying this game, since I've heard it's one of the best.

You should be able to get low-medium at that resolution. Take my advice with a grain of salt since I do not know how well optimized it is =)
