Is it normal that in 1080p on the lowest settings possible my fps is around 35-60?

I think they're normal, the game is pretty demanding for its age (and a bit unoptimized). :)

With your mobo's socket type, you MAY be able to upgrade the CPU to support this game, but if your mobo is especially poor, it might not even support that. It may be best to put together a new PC if you can.

What kind of GPU do you need to max this with ubersampling on and get 60+ fps? I can easily max it, but ubersampling literally "eats" 20+ fps.

I have a similar rig to Cobra's and got similar results. With everything maxed and uber on I got 50-60 FPS with the GPU around 70C the whole time. That said, I prefer it off for an even smoother 60 FPS and not much visual difference.

on mt current rig, but using a gtx 650ti instead of the 970, i was able to play the game on ultra 1080p (no uber sampling) and get around 45 fps... your cpu is a bit weaker, but your gpu very similar, so in 768p i believe you can run the game on high easily. hope this helps :)

Presumably CPU usage increases and GPU goes down...I'm no expert though.

that is absolutely NOT true.... ;)
as long as the cpu isn't LIMITING the gpu or the other way around it's ok.
CPU and GPU usage are NOT bound together or by each other and the IDEAL scenarios is if both the GPU and CPU(and RAM) are at 100%, BUT the problem is that this is not a gaming console, and thus windows or your OS has background processes running while you are playing so you need spare CPU and RAM resources to deal with them, you don't need gpu resources for them, since they are not GRAPHICAL.
I hope I explained it to you :)

You can't run it WELL if at all for prolonged amounts of time. No way to fix it, sadly.
