Will this system run Crysis Demo on Low, with the lowest resolution?

Pentium 4 3.06 GHz
1,75 GB of RAM
HD 3650 1 GB
Windows XP SP2

Low at 1280 x 768 seems possible.

ok... What about Lowest resolution (800xsomething) with med/low settings?

The lower the resolution, the fewer the pixels being pumped, the better the performance for any game in terms of frame rates, however.....

How happy are you going to be trying to cram a modern game like Crysis onto this system? Your user experience and satisfaction are sure to be very low.

Will it work? Yes. Will it work well? No, not on the system you are asking about. Your CPU and system memory will be huge bottlenecks and the GPU is underwhelming for the task as well. At best, run at the lowest settings and see how well it performs (at the monitor's native resolution).

Good luck!

That is not my actual system.. My actual system is a Pentium 4 @ 2.00 GHz, GeForce 6200 512mb and 1.75 GB of RAM :lol:  i am thinking of atleast upgrading the CPU.

Once again, your machine may run these games at their lowest settings, but not well. The stronger CPU will help, but only marginally. You simply don't have the CPU/GPU/memory horsepower to power these demanding titles.

BTW, your message signature indicates you have a Intel Core i3 530 @ 2.93GHz, 8GB DDR3 SDRAM, 750GB system. It would do okay as long as you have a good GPU.

The i3 system runs Crysis Demo on Very high with shadows to low and shaders to medium at 1024x768 with 25 FPS.. I have thought of upgrading the GPU, but my PSU is only 300 W.... :(

What GPU do you have in your i3 based system? If you are using what is on the mobo, you can certainly improve with several ATI and Nvidia based solutions that will work with your current PSU. There is also the matter of budget, how much do you want to spend to increase your performance capability?

i use the Radeon HD 5450 1 GB wich is meant for HD video playback... But the card combined with the i3's integrated card, gives me a total of 4,4 GB of Video memory, or atleast so it says in the Catalyst control panel. :p  And if i get a new GPU, i have a budget of about 100 bucks :lol:

Um, I think you are reading that wrong. The 5450 isn't using the on-board GPU unless you have another Crossfire compatible GPU built into the mobo (not very likely). You are seeing shared memory that could be allocated to your GPU if the system needed additional memory for graphics functions.

You could bump up to a 5670 like this one and stay in your budget while increasing performance:

Hmmmm, dude you say you have a GPU budget of 100.00$; that is seriously a lot of money, trying finding a used GPU on ebay or craigslist. You are bound to find 9800gtx.....8800gt......9800gt.....4870 under 100 dollars. i bought a sapphire 4870 for a pal for about 70.00$. GL dude.

You see I live in Norway and things in America costs only half, most of it... While a GPU costs 70$ In the U.S it costs maybe $110 here... :lol:

i could run crysis on medium settings with a geforce 8600 gs and q9300 quad core.

hey I am not talking about some quad-cored super CPU, I am talking about a single-core Pentium 4 @ 3 GHz and an HD 3650 512 mb. But thanks anyway :)

Super quad? I think not. the q9300 is bottom of the range.
