Your cpu and gpu are considerably weak , i think you might be able to get something between 25-40 fps on the lowest settings.

At high settings, I do not believe there is adequate free (unpaged) VRAM available. Perhaps Medium.

Total War games love to have extra VRAM, even if it never uses it. That is what I saw with a 390x, FireX, 590, and GTX2070, anyway.

For Total War games 1060 or 1050ti is enough for high settings but, Total War wants you to have good CPU...

I highly doubt youll be getting 60 constant even on that resolution. If you lower your settings then maybe yes , but on medium you'll be getting around 35-45 fps in battles and those 2-cores don't help much either,lower the settings i'd say
