I think on Medium with Hairworks: OFF, Foilage, Grass Density and Background Characters on LOW. This game is CPU and GPU demanding so there are lots of variables, but with that resolution I think MEDIUM with some mixed HIGH settings on Textures and Details can work.
I saw a benchmark with 1050Ti and i3-6100 on 1080p with 50 FPS with those settings. Give them a try.

On your resolution you can. Not on the fanciest settings, but on medium I'd guess. You really should upgrade your GPU though, your CPU deserves it :)

Yes. Medium sounds about right for you, since it's quite CPU hungry game :)

Hello, is it bad joke if i ask you if i can play it? Someone tell me that its possible but I don't trust him. I know, maybe with 8GB RAM it's chance, but it's just maybe..

No. Your ram is too outdated for this game. Considering upgrading.
