The CPU is fine and you have enough memory, but you should post your GPU model as well

That integrated videocard isn't going to play this game smoothly, not even on lowest.
Sorry to say that turn.gif

If you want to play this game (and other games), you should upgrade your videocard to something new depending on your budget.

Heavier games, MSI GTX 460 for $140
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814127646

More heavier games, MSI GTX 560 Ti for $210
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814127565

Very heavy gaming, ASUS GTX 570 for $300
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814121432

Even heavier gaming, ASUS GTX 580 for $430
