You can probably manage SNES and Genesis roms. Probably Sega CD roms as well, online flash games. Probably browser based Unity engine games like Battlestar Galactica Online.

Mostly old and less demanding games like Bioshock 1 AC1 GTA:SA Minecraft Splinter Cell Double Agent and older ones.Hitman Blood Money, BF2, Fifa 14,AC2, Portal 1..only these could come to mind right now..:D

Mostly all the games, with reduced settings, except the super power hungry ones like - Metro 2033, Crysis, Battlefield, the new Assassins Creeds etc. those will probably struggle at the lowest settings and resolutions. But the less demanding ones like Skyrim and Starcraft 2 should run fine with low resolution(Like 720p or sometimes lower) and medium graphics.
With worse GPU- 9400gt and a loooot worse CPU - AMD athlon x2 64 dual core 3800+ I could play older games like Oblivion and Burnout paradise on high settings and 1680x1050p resolution. I got Skyrim only because I was a real fan of TES games, and I took the risk of hoping that it would run on my pc, and it did - 1280x720p and lowest settings. :D  So you're not all that doomed with your pc.

you could easily run alot of decent games if you change power supply to a 600w 80 plus and install a 7790 graphics card you would get medium-high on almost all games
