I think you can run just a bit higher than the lowest settings, just turn down anti aliasing.

Can I run it? I can set the Resolution to 640x480 and everything on lowest and off, I heard that multiplayer runs smoother than Singleplayer.

I Can't make sure you run it Clear bro, also the Multiplayer mode is not running smoother than singleplayer mode on your rig. I recommended you to Upgrade your CPU or Both CPU GPU first.

Just going to say, multiplayer has no reason to offer better fps that single player ;D btw, with my pc with Core 2 Extreme (like a core 2 quad) runs at 60fps lowest, 45 fps on medium with some tweaked to high (at 1080p), and that's at about 38-75% cpu usage xD...

Hmm I noticed how you said this a few times xD you most likely can launch this game, but you will want to run at low, and you certainly won't get a great fps. Probaly between 10-35 fps on lowest. Upgrade your GPU to something like a GTX 750 and you will play this game no probs on ultra :D

Can anyone tell me why does BF3 suddenly freeze when i play after about 10-15 mins.
I have around 30-55 fps on the lowest settings. The game runs just fine until it freezes.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

All I can think of is overheating & overclocking... BF3 will crash from too much OC and will, of course, crash if overheat.
