Yes, but your rig is so weak to play most games on playable frames, i recommend you to buy a good decent PC to enjoy playing most games with good graphics and smooth frames and other stuff ;)

You can play with 2GB of RAM, but only on lowest settings. You must upgrade your rig, or easiest way, buy a new one ;) But in general, YES, YOU CAN RUN THIS GAME ON LOWEST SETTINGS, I predict 30 FPS. For better FPS, lower your resolution!

You should be able to run it at medium settings with smooth frames,but on all low and 50% render id say you might get around 40+ frames :)

It will run OK if you kept your cpu and gpu specs even though that ram is a little low. You'll probably just have to lower some settting. Have fun :)

The optimization is good and you are above the minimum requirements, so you should be able to get smooth fps on low settings. Keep in mind though that 1080p is way too big of a resolution for your GPU. So if you get slow performance at times, consider lowering your res a bit.

I think so, yeah. But it would be better if you kept the aspect ratio the same, so play at 1280x720. You should still get an enormous performance boost.

You'll have to sacrifice the animations then... Just how unstable is your framerate?

Wow that must have been pretty terrible... Glad it works now. It's kind of surprising that you were experiencing drops like that, you should be able to run it on low with no problems :/
