low. your gpu is limiting you a lot. the later levels and grinder modes are going to bring your system to a screeching halt with the amount of enemies on screen. after you can upgrade the gpu, an i5 minimum is going to make a huge difference.

it says high but on the later levels and grinder modes you will see fps drop a lot. id drop to medium and you should be good. still going to have slowdown but that's a cpu issue that even a high overclock doesn't help a lot.
