1080p you would be able to play medium with no AA at all.
720p you would be able to play a little higher from medium.
The main thing that would be holding yourself back from playing high settings is your processor really.

If you're playing on Ultra 1080p i would assume you would be getting on average 35 fps.

Yes, but your processor is a bottleneck to your GPU. Go medium and you should be able to run 30-40 FPS. Upgrade to an i3 at least in the future.

Low/medium setting 30+ FPS and if you lowered your res to around 900p you would have no problems.
If you want to play on medium settings alone best bet to play on 720p.

I am wondering why you're using a server processor anyways and julianCRis i am going to need some proof on that because really a GT 730 is far below the minimum needed to play this game.

Sadly no you're unable to play this game you would need to upgrade your system in order to play.
