This game is quite well optimised and you could play on maybe medium - high with no AA or V-sync. Maybe try playing at 1366x768 to get a smoother experience :)

High-ultra or ultra with 45+ fps. If you're going to play at 1080p, don't use AA ;)

You will be able to run it, maybe on low - medium. Your CPU is causing a large bottleneck and you could do with 2GB more ram to avoid massive stuttering. If a CPU upgrade is out of the picture, a ram upgrade is you next very important change. I would suggest you play at a reduced rez, 1280x720. with no AA and V-sync off :)

You should be able to run it on very high but experience says that high might be a better option. Definitely worth you getting the game and trying it for yourself. One of the best games I have played :)

Try at Low settings with that resolution, I'm guessing u'll get 35 average FPS.
