    Yes, but you'll be restricted to Medium.

    you'll be able to run it just fine.
    not maxed out, but reasonably well

    suggested resolution
    1440*900
    or
    1280*720

    and trial/error
    also emphasize reduced texture settings(medium)

    Take using your screen's native resolution over turning up the graphics. No matter how high your graphics are set, it won't look anywhere near as good unless you're running your screens native res.

    it's a matter of opinion and for each individual what works best must be determined on a case by case basis

    people say the same of halo, but it doesn't stop some from liking it.

    my suggestion is to try the demo first

    in general yes

    srtest/canyourunit is a decent benchmark, but keep in mind it's not 100% accurate.

    I recall a while back it rated my 2.6Ghz opteron as subpar and recommended I replace it with a 3.2Ghz pentium D.
    the Pentium D is around 40% slower.
