What is the oldest and slowest PC hardware the game Crysis could theoretically run on?

I have tested it on a celeron @ 2.6ghz and it is really slow, I would imagine an entry level Shader Model 3 supported GPU would also be a requirement.

If you are running lowest spec.......I would get an upgrade....pronto

No, I've got a $2800 gaming rig and I can run Crysis on it's max settings. I was just asking.....

I beat the game on a P4 3.0 with 2 gigs of 400mhz ram and an AGP ATI x1650. I had to run it at 1024x768 with every thing set to the lowest but the FPS was in the low 30s most of the time.

As I stated I have tested it on a Intel Celeron 2.6ghz and it was in the "skull crunching slow" bracket, so I would imagine anything less than entry Celeron would die.

Any low end GPU with Shader Model 3.0.

DDR400 1gig or less

i have seen it run on a penny d 2.4 with an x800pro minimum settings was playable until you got into the caves.

I remember when Doom 3 and Half Life 2 brought the PC's of the time to their knees. Today, it's games like Crysis and Metro 2033 that give PC hardware a run for it's money.

Strangely enough I think that Napoleon Total War and the like seem to kill critical resources quicker than the more visually intensive games.

Quake 4 killed my old Pentium D 630 @ 3.02 Ghz and Radeon 9600GT badly.

Yeah, games such as Total War, are mainly CPU intensive, because of all of the AI. So, if you don't have a half-decent processor, then your computer will beg for mercy.

I've seen Crysis running on a Pentium 4, 1GB RAM, and a Radeon X800 series GPU.

Oh I played crysis almost playably on intel atom 230 1.6ghz single core with 1GB of DDR2 299mhz and intel GMA 945G (vertex and pixel shader 2.0)
windows (tiny vista) fresh install with directX installed and all C++ versions installed in one go with this 40mb installer

I got 40FPS+ after jumping out of the plane for a few seconds looking up at the sky but when i looked at the ground it plummeted down to 1-10FPS... with lower draw distances of objects and vegetation objects... i get 5-15FPS.. sometimes it lags but it works :D
