GeForce 8600M GT Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce 8600M GT is a middle class level GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Very demanding games (e.g. Metro 2033, The Witcher 2) are most certainly unplayable and demanding games (e.g. Crysis 2, Skyrim V) might only be playable on the lowest settings. Moderate and less demanding games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops, should be playable smoothly at Medium settings.

Actually, the 8600m GT model has three possible amounts, 128MB, 256MB and 512MB. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_8_Series#GeForce_8600M_Series

The 256MB model is the most common, but 512MB is the maximum.
