I think that you will be able to reach 30 fps on low. The game will run better with 4 gigs of ram tho. Cheers

u can run it on high or ultra high(if there is one) without problems on 60+ fps but the poor optimisation on this game may prevent that so 20 i think cause i played on pc that can support medium graphics but it still lags horribly even low

On lowest resolution(640x480) and lowest settings,you should get fps around 20 but at some areas you might get fps low as 15.

Your CPU is bottlenicking your GPU,however you should still run it smoothly on low-medium.
Did you try re-installing drivers?
