pentium 4 isn't up to gaming anymore, that chip is 10 years old. also 768meg ram isn't enough for anything these days. time for a new system.

don't throw money at that system, new ram isn't going to help you at all. its most likely ddr1, which isn't cheap. build a new system.

Dude honeslty all your gonna be able to play is some indie games in steam. Honestly plan on doing a new build from the ground up other wise get a ATi 4850, and upgrade the RAM to 3 gigs or start saving for a new system. You could even see if you can get at least to something with a dual core and ddr2 at least and should really aim for a ddr3 platform to make the system last more than 2 years.

well, I would save my money and in a year I'd build a new PC from a scratch /since components get cheaper over time, I'd get a more powerful machine for the same cash/ :) 

as for now - there are a lot of good old gems that are playable on your PC - Baldur's Gate, Planescape Torment, Arcanum, Vampire The Masquerade, SilverFall, Final Fantasy VI, VII, Might and Magic series, The Elder Scrolls Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, etc...
also - there are a lot of emulators which let you play good old super nintendo /play station, sega, or even ZX Spectrum/ games - the graphics may not be on par with today's standards, but storywise they are way better than most of the crap that is produced today :)

Just find some DEMOS and start installing them to get a feel for what your system can handle. As mentioned, Indie games and/or non-demanding sidescrollers or older games etc.

Try googling "fun games older hardware"

I'd start with Angry Birds which has a demo (there are at least three Demos, including Star Wars but I prefer the original).

It doesn't work that way because the old stuff is not compatible with the new stuff and vice versa.
