no, you are gonna need a better processor and a dedicated graphics card, unless im not mistaken the R7 is part of the APU rather than a dedicated card.

You might be able to, but i doubt it will be much fun. As any significant frame drops in a competitive game like this ruin the experience

although if you're looking for a good playable experience, 30 fps might bring down your play

I think you could potentially run it at 4k. My friend has GTX970 and he is runnin it at 4k 130fps stable... So at 60 it should be possible for you.
