i had lag when i started the game first time. i had the graphics on Ultra. the AA was to high for me to handle, so by making it AA x2 all lag disappeared.
My specs are.

CPU: Core i7 920 clocked at 3,1
RAM: 6GB clocked at 1700mhz with CL8
GPU: EVGA GTX 570 overclocked slightly.
MOBO: ASUS Rampage 3 Extreme.

AA stands for anti aliasing.
it's a graphical technology that removes some of the edges you see in games. like if you stand close to a big rock and you look closely, you will see that the edges of the model are kinda edged, pixelated.
search anti aliasing on youtube. you will find some videos that explain and shows it.

your GPU (the 2GB Nvidia GT430) is an old low end GPU. you need a better video card in order to play it.
you have a good enough CPU and RAM. but the gpu is too low end and old to play newer games.
if you wanna play it and not spend too much money, then a Nvidia 650ti should do the job.
