You can run, your Quadro K5100M is only 27% weaker than my card, which means you can run it nicely. Even a Intel HD 3000 can run this game, it's not that demanding.

The recommended settings are higher then my rig, but I get great fps with every thing on high and 1920x1080. Sometimes the sound is a bit glichy though.

I'd say maximum settings within the 20-30 fps range, and if you tweak some settings then higher fps will be possible :)

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like you will be able to run this :( You MIGHT be able to get low to mid 20s on minimum, but a change of resolution may be needed. Luckily this game plays really well on FPS in the 20-30 range :)
