Maybe a little low on CPU side, but don't think it will stop the game being playable. Enjoy.

These are the RECOMMENDED requirements for mass effect 2 :


* Windows XP SP3 / Windows Vista SP1 / Windows 7
* 2.6+ GHz Cure 2 Duo Intel or equivalent AMD CPU
* 2 GB RAM
* ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT, or better recommended
* 100% DirectX compatible sound card and drivers
* DirectX August 2008


Your system meets the requirements and you're playing at only 1280X1024.
That's why I said it will max out the game.

I have a very similar PC but haven't tried ME2(No money:(  )

Just found a video with description that answers your question.

This guy claims he run ME2 on 1280X1024 with 9600GT and a Dual core with 2GB Ram with 50fps(Which is decent).

Have a look at the video as well as the description :bounce:

Your processor is comparable to that 3Ghz dual core.
If you experience some lag(Which, i don't think you'll experience ) then OC your CPU a bit. OC upto 3Ghz won't need any effort!!

But my Intel Dg31PR won't let me OC my processor.

Mass Effect 2 runs smooth as butter maxed out at 1920x1200 on my 4 year old dual core:
4200+ Dual Core (2.2 GHz)
2 GB RAM
GTX 260

Your processor won't be a bottleneck.

Your specs seem pretty good, just not for the max settings.
But other than that Mass Effect 2 will run.
