Well with the listed specs you have, I'm not surprised. You would be better off building a gaming desktop

I don't have experience with your hardware, but I've run ME2 on low end hardware so you should be just fine.

Ah, I remember running this on 8400gs when it was released. Was barely playable, had to tweak .ini files because even lowest was too laggy. Those were the days. ME1 didn't lag too much with 8400gs on lowest settings though :D
