What games can this motherboard run? I have G33/G31 Intel Core Duo E8500 @3.16 GHz. Will it play Sims 3 or Silent Hill games? I'm not a major gamer, but I like survival horror games and games with a story and puzzles to solve.

If you are talking about the integrated GMA there are not many games it will play! Possible some old ones.

Forget about Sims 3.
You'd have to find a bunch of Demos online and see how they play but I agree that not much will work unless it's optimized for low-end graphics cards.

You should consider buying an addon graphics card. I'd have to know what PSU you had to give advice.

I'd also have to calculate at what point your CPU would become the bottleneck.

If interested, I'll give advice.

To give you an idea of the performance of the Intel G31/G33, check out the following youtube video of Left 4 Dead using low quality graphics and a resolution of 640x480.

Left 4 Dead uses the Source Engine from Half-Life 2. As far as game engines go, Source Engine is pretty easy going compared to other game engines which are more demanding.

I'm sorry, I didn't know I posted it twice. The first time I tried to post it showed an error message: Flood attempt detected. You cannot post this question. So I apologize if it went through twice
