Hello everyone, i want to buy this game and before i do it i want to know what preformance i can except.My PC is not best but it can handle newest games on my monitor resolution - 1440*900

So my PC specs are:
Intel Dual-Core e5700 @ 3.4GHZ overclocked
Sapphire Radeon 5670 1gb GDDR5 830/1050 overclocked
4gb DDR3 ram - 1333mhz
I am using Windows 7 64bit.

I can play Crysis 2 smoothly - gamer settings 1440*900 and 40-60 fps
Same about Dead Island, Medal of Honor 2010, Just cause 2,FEAR 2, GRID, Left 4 dead 2, Lord of the rings War in the north or Far Cry 2.

Bad company runs pretty well too except laggs first 5 minutes of gameplay,-after i play for few mins the fps is finally stable that means 35-50. This game is very CPU intensive.The only games where i dont get 30+ fps most of the time are Assassins creed 2 where it sometimes drops to 19 fps and average like 39- but i heard this game wasnt optimized for PC thats why it sux.
Anyways, i went to Systemrequirmentslab,where i did scan called "Can you run it" and it says i match minimum requirments but not recommended- Quad core CPU. I want to play 30+ fps and because there is no demo i know about i am going to buy it and i really dont want to buy somethin that will lagg.
Your suggestions? - BTW i dont want to hear replies like upgrade ur build because my vallet is empty :??:

Yep it will run but 30fps average and you'll get stutter from time to time. Just have the game run at default setting

I already installed this game. I am using 1440x900 resolution and graphics settings recommended by the game for my pc. - its all on medium except textures they are on high.
I am getting 25-50 fps but 36 fps average,however the game kept shuttering even if i had good fps.I fixed this issue by changing resolution.For example: i start game at 1400x900, i change resolution to lower then change it back and shuttering dissapears. :)
