    I think you can run it on low/medium.

    Go here Canirunit.com and tell me what it says or give me a picture.

    What resolution are you running at.

    You won't be able to run the game at a playable frame rate. Just telling you right now. A 8600GTS on a E8400 can't even hit 20 FPS at 1280x1024 Medium detail 0xMSAA 16xAF, you'd be lucky if you saw 10 FPS on low detail with no filters.

    You don't have much power but you will be able to run at lowest settings for sure but you won't get much more than that with an 8500GT. Your CPU isn't so fast but it shouldn't be a limiting factor. you might be able to turn up the shader settings to medium but if you turn up the texture settings the game will be too choppy because the 8500 has slow memory. Also you'll have to be at a fairly low resolution to play, at least 1024x768.

    You should be able to get a playable frame rate but it won't be pretty.

    This is all based on the benchmark of a 8600GT and the difference in the spec of the 8500GT because for some reason there are no benchmarks at low settings with 8500GT.
    WAT?

    So if i played online do you think it would be laggy? I could deal with it not looking pretty.

    Probably yes, I can't tell you as every system is different from the next, but you should get a FPS range of 20-40 at low settings at that resolution.

    20-40 eh? how bad would be the lag on a scale from 1 to 10 would you say?

    When you play online the graphics are dialed down some and as long as you don't use too much of your CPU you should be fine at low settings. With the textures at low the game should be quite smooth even with such slow Vram.

    At 25FPS the game is playable without too much trouble aiming and after 30 it's perfect. Crysis is one of the few gmes that doesn't need too high of a frame rate to play.

    Crysis is one of the most tweakable games i've played if you want to get some extra detail you shoul head over to Here and then Here
