yes for sure i ran it at my secondary pc on medium-high 1280x1024p
and hardware is
i3 3220 which is slightlly better then your fx4100
gtx750ti which is again on par with your r7 360 + my 750ti was 1gb version
and i also used 8gb so my answer is yes, i am pretty sure that you should be able to run it on medium-to high on 720p and get around 30-40fps

Your laptop wont be able to handle this, I suggest getting it modifed with another onboard gpu if possible or buy a new one that has a GTX 1650m and a i5.
