anything that's not 3d will run fine. Try the games prior to 2004.

I don't think you will be able to play anything newer than 1998 with that machine, sorry BoomStick.

yes and if this is the case, win7 doesnt play games that old, which sucks.

games playable

classics

age of empires 2,3
half life 2
warcraft

most older games

emulators

nes snes psx neo geo should run fine

newer games

oblivion should work in low details
resident evil 4 should work
most others should work also in low details


current games

crysis 2 asassins creed and others sould work but at unplayable fps


the basic problem in your case will be the fps and what you consider playable

i think your gpu should be sufficient for low settings so playability will depend on the cpu


test all these games by demos or borrowing dvd from friends
do not buy a game without trying would waste money in your case
