I do not think that it can be playable but on a lower resolution and low settings. But Far Cry tends to be graphicaly dependant, so it won't be as enjoyable. :/

You can go on High settings for everything with no problems. Maybe get the AA low or off, but you should have no problems playing this on 60 FPS ;)

I wouldn't bother. Might as well get it for a console or upgrade your rig. If you're lucky maybe you could do low around 25-30FPS.

I'd say no. It would be unplayable. You may need to upgrade your rig especially that processor and graphic card. I'd say getting a GTX 760 is a good start.
