Can I run this game smoothly at max? I've heard that it can be quite soothing once you get used to it and I definitely need a nice new game to kind of turn my brain off with and just kind of go.

Yes, it will do it at all low with supersampling at .75, it won't look pretty but the gameplay will still exist. I did it for over 100 hours on a Intel HD 3000 with an average of 25 fps. It would dip down to 15 fps rarely when fighting in ringed planets rings, but it would always recover enough to continue playing. It never froze or anything on me either. make sure your resolution in 720p not 768p too, not a big reduction but good for the performance. I got 45 fps else ware.

I can run it perfectly fine, and my setup is worse than yours. I don't know exact settings but you should be able to play pretty well.
