I would highly recommend the Complete 2009 mod. It significantly enhances the graphics, most noticeably the textures. Tweak the user.ltx file for performance.

Thinking back now, this game was really good during it time, highly suggest getting it modded most preferable would be MISERY mod, mostly to take advantage of the extra performance

I am getting on average about 200 fps with the lowest being about 170 and the highest about 300 according to Bandicam. The game runs on highest settings and is not laggy. But can the fps really be that high or is this a Bandicam bug?

It's a rather old game; Bandicam is probably accurate. Of course, it doesn't mean you are actually seeing the game at 200 FPS, since most displays have a refresh rate of 60Hz, 120Hz tops. Getting some mods would be a nice way to capitalize on the extra performance.

What settings should I use to get an average of 30-40 fps and still have the game look decent? Also if possible maybe medium in my native resolution (1600x900)?

I think you can run it but only low settings because the problem is the integrated video card :/
