Your GPU isn't good enough for the minimum requirement, so you might have FPS around 15 or 20. I'm no expert at this game, so experiment with lower resolutions.

Yeah. But on low settings and it might lag. I played it on 800x600 on low and got 30+ fps with E7500 and GT610.

Well, you can play on 720p and medium settings imo. But you could go for higher resolution as well as your GPU meets the recommended requirements (though the game is poorly optimized, so i would say that 720p with medium high would work).
