I think you might be able to squeeze high settings out of this one, it doesn't rely heavily on the CPU ;)
Oh and what's your RAM type and frequency?

Sorry, your GPU isn't supported by the game :(
You may get it running but you need to lower the resolution and you might experience some graphical bugs :/

its kind of like a mystery + horror.
The game is really good. It can feel repetitive, but in my opinion it has a great story and gameplay. I suggest you to try this one ;)

Well, there aren't many of which I would know. You can try the american nightmare (its Alan Wake as well)
LA Noire
Amnesia
Telltale's the walking dead episodes
the darkness 2
maybe Max Payne as well.
You can try those, all are decent games with a bit of mystery :)

With your res I think MEDIUM is the best you could do. If you lower res than higher settings are achievable.

This game is pretty demanding, I have a laptop with Core i3 M380 2.53Ghz, ATI Mobility Radeon 5470 512MB and 4GB RAM, only able to get 13-20 FPS. Your GPU is a bit weak so I think it will lag for you.
