half-life and counter-strike, both the same engine....both good games (althought there are some ppl here that do not like counter-strike) You can always play older games, and real time strategies that are of lower requirments. Just go to your local videogame store, or on line...and check system requirements!

You can try Warcraft 3, or Counter Strike....Unreal is a big no no...that squeezes the juices out of your system....

Warcraft3 and C-S are my favorite...:thumb:

Unreal is ehh so -so...:sleepy:

yeah you might be in luck with Warcragft 3 it only requires an 8MB video card. You might be able to play it....but maybe not that well. I has able to install and run GTA3 on my old box....but it ran like crap!

I've tried battle realms that game is cool also a couple of others warcraft 3 works but ran really choppy but I had my antivirus and firewall and anti trojan software on because I was connected to the internet but it will work thanks for the heads up guys:clap:

Sure play q3. I played for a long time with a p3 550 onboard 810e intel or some crap like that. My fps (frames per second) were crappy, but it worked fine. If you tweak the heck out of the game you can get a good 60fps also. The other thought I have for you, get a pci card. Although your agp card would seem to be a newer technology and a better choice, I got a
$100 pci card and put it in the system I just spoke of and got up to 102 fps (again my game was overly tweaked). Anything over 100 is workable with q3 for sure. Your processor speed is faster than mine so it would be worth a shot. The other thing is q3 has to be cheap now a days or so I would hope. Probably the first Aliens vs Predators game as well. I think Warcraft would probably work as well but you may have to tone down some of the graphics to make it run smoothly for you. I never played Diablo but I'm assuming since it isn't 3d rendering you could play that as well...oops Diablo 2 I mean.

BTW, you can buy a PCI video card, like a GeForce 4 MX 440 or something. Not the best money can buy, but it's about the best you can get.
