Changing video options doesn't change your frame rate much

I have this game and have difficulty achieving 60fps due to its 32bit settings. I'm guessing you would have trouble playing it as well.

My system is a simple 2013 machine with an AMD A4 5300 APU, an NVIDIA GTX 650 2GB and 4GB of 1333mhz DDR3 RAM.
It is barely playable, at least on Windows 10.
