Borderlands packshot image
In the distant future, several colonization ships head to Pandora, a planet on the edge of the galaxy. The colonists are drawn there in search of a better life as well as vast mineral resources said to be on the planet, free for anyone's taking, akin to a futuristic gold rush. Some time after settling the colonists discover that there is little the planet offers, aside from some decrepit alien ruins. Those who have money leave, the remaining population devolves into chaos and lawlessness. Some of the settlers seek to get rich quick by discovering alien technology. Most others are just trying to survive. After seven earth years, the planet's slow orbit brings a transition from winter to spring, and many horrifying creatures emerge from hibernation.

PC System Analysis For Borderlands Requirements
Borderlands requires at least a Radeon HD 3800 series or GeForce GT 240 to meet recommended requirements running on high graphics setting, with 1080p resolution. This hardware should achieve 60FPS. 2 GB will also be needed to achieve the Borderlands rec specs and get 60FPS. Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Borderlands needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 9. We suggest a 12 year old PC to play smoothly.

I can get 62 FPS Max and sometimes even as low as 30 in certain areas because of how dense it is. I say you could get around 20-30 FPS on low and in areas like Sledges Mine probably like 5-20 in all honesty :/
