I doubt it because of RAM, and because it requires DX 10

VERY LOW Settings @ 1366x768: very playable @ 17-25 FPS
LOW: 15-20 FPS
MEDIUM: 15-17 FPS
HIGH: 13-17 FPS
Same settings @ 800x600 give a 1-3 FPS extra accordingly but look much worse.
My choice: VERY LOW @ 1366x768

Probably low-med, because your CPU is great but sadly your GPU only passes minimum requirements, not recommended requirements. You will get great FPS and smooth gameplay on low-med settings, have fun!

If i turn of AA , m able to get 37+ FPS. At MSAA off, m able to get 40+ FPS.

So, This is one AWESOME game. Got it yesterday, finished two of the missions(I knw m slow) at medium difficulty. Real interesting, the graphics are just AMAZING and i can play it at highest settings with my old HD 6770 @1600x900 at 35+ FPS. With GTX 670, the game is JUST FAB at Full HD.
A must try, i would say to all avid gamers(:P).
