Exactly, 15 fps is not really playable. 30 would be nice which indeed would be medium

I think this game has a maximum resolution of 1024x768, but you can max this game out with more than 35 fps, good luck ;)

My old computer (with a HD 6450) could play this game with a resolution of 1920x1080 (highest resolution for this game) without any framedrops/lag. don't know if it was 30 or 60 fps.
So you can run it at ultra in FHD.

Yes I know however my old pc was not as good as his fx-8320 cpu and gt640 ;) just saying that he can easily max this game at max resolution (which is 1080p) with that rig if I could already do that with my old one.

Possibly high. If not, drop the resolution and you'll be good to go.
