dota cpu intensive, i3-2100 definitely can't perform smooth 60 fps with all cpu intensive settings no matter what resolution. even if you bound max frame rate on 60 it would be 40-60

Old c2d huge bottleneck your gpu.
My rig with almost lowest cpu settings drops from 79 to 45 fps. Defenetly recommend google how to put xeon e5450 to your rig. At first check if your mobo can carry bios update

Im ok with the Minimum (as GD is showing) but im skeptical if will actually run fine since its been out for a few years and it could get much more demanding than first release.
