I have a bad feeling about this... I think you should get a better GPU (like the GTX 750 or the R7 370), otherwise you'll have bad experience...

Yes, if not max, at least tweaked ultra should work, disabling AA for example :)

You could pull off high-ultra, but I doubt you'll get 60 fps, especially in highly populated servers.

You should be able to, at least most of the time. If you prefer fps over graphics quality, then go for medium-high. And no problem :D

I'm fine with locking the framerate at like 40 fps, if it is consistant

I don't think you'll need to lock the framerate. I don't even remember if you could do that, to be honest :D
Anyway, try medium-high settings with no more than x2 MSAA. That probably won't give you 60 fps, but at least your framerate should be consistent.
