Game's pretty old so you'll probably have a very good chance because of newer drivers.Don't expect much though.At that res 35 fps should be good at low-medium.

DA:O is one of the best games I've ever played, despite its dated graphics. The story is very well written and the gameplay fits my kind of gameplay, too. I still always play the HMN origin though.

I don't think you can run the game with decent FPS. My laptop has the same specs (only with 2GB of RAM) and it can barely run anything.

You should get decent frames at medium with AA and Frame Buffer off! I used to play this game on a 4350 and it was an enjoyable experience, even on high settings(AA off), just remember to set the rez at 1024x768. Have fun playing! :p

I can play this on medium at my native resolution with Vysnc, AA and Frame Buffer off with good fps, around 30 fps, if it helps anyone :)

I'm guessing you got it for free? So just try it on low and work your way up, you have little ram and your CPU might struggle, but your native resolution is low

I just downloaded this game for free (thank you EA) and was looking at the DLC's. Which of the numerous dlc's and the one big expansion ''Awakening'' are worth getting? I'm only planning on buying a few of the best if they are worth it, or should I just wait for the ultimate edition to go on sale on steam this haloween
