Those aren't your specs. That is just a text dump. You've got 1.5GB of ram. What? DDR2? 1 GB + 512MB? 1GB + 256MB + 256MB?

You have an Intel processor, but which kind?


You want to play 2008 games with an AGP card? Impossible. The latest and greatest AGP card is the AMD Radeon HD 4650 AGP Edition. It is slower than it's pcie counterpart, and is mega-expensive due to the cards no longer being made. The cost of one would be the cost of half a modern machine.

And even if you could get that card, it won't run games from 2008 well at all. Low settings if your lucky.
If your system is old enough to be AGP compliant, your CPU won't even be able to handle the games, even if there was an AGP card capable of doing so.


tl;dr: Get a new system.
