You say you've met the requirements for the game, but with 10-15 fps.. Here are a few starter questions to help determine the issue

Can you post your specs? How high is your ping and where are you from? How high would you say your framerate was before?

Oh wow, everything apart from the graphics card is good for running source games, so that is odd. Does your ping issue extend to all games and browsing? You can verify this with speedtest.net assuming they have servers near you.

That's a huge loss in performance for sure. What I would do after verifying your ping is to check integrity of Dota 2's cache in steam (if you need help with this, I can show you how to get there) -- or even a complete reinstall. (Delete the directory from your folder, and then uninstall local content via the client)

And to check your computer's temperature when playing. If you play other games at a fine clip, it shouldn't be temperature, but I have found with most people that the gpu temperature underload is the problem. A good, free piece of software to monitor your individual components is "Game Booster"

I also trust you have an antivirus of some sort?

Sorry for all the suggestions and such, it could be any of these things. Long story short, just check your speed on speedtest.net and make sure your dota 2 install is fine. Then work from there

Okay, then that is really odd. Your results are fine. Here is the page for the game booster software I was reffering http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html

Once you install this, the bottom of the software should give you your temperatures in real time as you play.

Also check to verify your video drivers are updated

Performance "boosters" like those can screw up your pc, just a warning.

Hey I was having issues as well, I have a dual core 3ghz intel, 4 gb ddr3 ram, nvidia geforce 9500gt 500mb video and very good cable internet connection, I cannot run the game at an acceptable level with all settings on lowest and even disabling sound etc., I am knowledgable and work sometimes in the IT field, I have reinstalled my OS and loaded nothing but latest drivers and steam+dota to get the best performance possible and I still have more than half a second delay at least between my inputs and what happens in the game. Any ideas? I have mostly given up on the game until I upgrade even though all requirements are easily met... I would love to get back into dota cause the subs out there pale in comparison =)
