Dragon Age: Origins packshot image
The Chantry teaches that it is the hubris of men that brought the darkspawn into our world. Mages sought to usurp Heaven, but were cast out, twisted by their own corruption, only to return as monsters--the darkspawn. They plague the underground caverns and tunnels once inhabited by the dwarven kingdoms. When they awaken one of the Old Gods, ancient dragons slumbering in the depths of the earth, it rises as an archdemon to lead the darkspawn in a full-scale invasion of the human lands: a Blight. It has been four centuries since the last Blight, but the darkspawn are amassing once again.

Game's pretty old so you'll probably have a very good chance because of newer drivers.Don't expect much though.At that res 35 fps should be good at low-medium.

DA:O is one of the best games I've ever played, despite its dated graphics. The story is very well written and the gameplay fits my kind of gameplay, too. I still always play the HMN origin though.
