Minimum requirements for the game are a 512kb 8600 so I doubt you can run it at all.

time for an upgrade the 8500 is crap, also a 512(kb) card does not exists and wouldn't power anything, c'mon 512 kilobytes? Im sure you meant mb but anyways.... What resolution are you using?? also full system specs??, then i can make an upgrade suggestion.

lol, yes I meant mb. I bet SOMEWHERE there's a 512kb graphics card, maybe in an original gameboy or a commodore 64 ;)

Yeah I personally can remember getting a 64mb video card way back in the day and thinking it was all the rage, I mean 64 mb of video memory wow, (nowadays completely worthless) lol

That's nothing, I remember when I built a 486 sx 25 when I was 14 ram cost 50 bucks a megabyte. I had 4 megs and a 40 meg harddrive and thought I would never need more. I played doom on a 2400 baud external modem that was bigger than most netbooks are these days lol.

Wow dude, Really brave attempt to play Mafia 2 on that card. :)  I have an 8600GT and I gave up trying to play the latest games. :D 
In my opinion you have 2 options.
1)Try reducing the games resolution.
2)Upgrade your VGA.

Try to upgrade to a new VGA. Thats the only permanent solution to the issue. :)
