You might be CPU limited.  My 7970s fly through the game with everything max'd out but I've got a 3930K @ 4.4GHz and 16GB RAM @ 2133.  If your rig is 4 years old it might be out of date for the game.

The other issue is that you've got a 32-bit Operating System. Because of that, your 4GB of system RAM means that there is no VRAM for the 7970, or that every GB of memory on the 7970 takes 1GB away from Windows.

With a 32-bit OS, it can only reference 4GB of memory, and that includes the graphics card. As such, you have 3GB on your card and 4GB in your system, so of that 7GB only 4GB can be used at a time. If you're using 256MB on your 7970 and 3.75GB in Windows, or even 3GB on the 7970 and 1GB in Windows, that would explain the performance issues as well.

Yep,if they read the reviews/system requirements,the game is not meant for low spec systems.

To OP,time to upgrade to new mobo/cpu/x64 os.The new games are going to keep asking more(the price you pay for wanting higher quality).
