Some people claim to run FC4 with that kind of rig on medium, so I would advise medium or tweaked high as your res is fairly low. :)

That's the thing with pirated software. xD
Don't expect stable gameplay from a pirated game.
Found this off of a forum though:
"i took the gameprofilexml and put it on my desktop booted up the game so it made a new one and it was fixed then if you had edited that file its ok because once you come out of the game you can move the original file back in and all should be well for a little time atl

I still encourage you to buy this game if you enjoy it, at least when it's on sale. 5€ is not that much, and this is one of the only great Ubisoft games.
