This runs just as well as the original Dark Souls II for me.
Why are the system requirements higher? It's literally the same game, but with the expansions.

CPU is holding you a bit back but you could probably run it on 720p low settings considering the CPU, GPU and RAM are ok for medium/high settings i'd say. Good luck!

low-mid settings with that resolution should net you anywhere from 50-60 fps no problem. this game is not that graphically intensive.
