im looking for some fun games to play on my destop, here are my specs

ive got 1022 MB Ram
a old school Pentium 4 at 2.80 Ghz
and on board (yes on board) Intel 82865G graphics controller with only 96 MB

honestly all i would need is a cheap PCI graphics card and i could run ALOT more on this bad boy

im probably gonna go snag one of these sometime next week

OT:
Errr...
I'm not really sure with an onboard graphics card with 96mb video ram...
Possibly the first Fallout game?

Maybe Diablo 1 or 2? Awesome games.

This, I just 'acquired' it today and I forgot how much I loved it. Such a good game.

I second Deus Ex, and the original Fallouts, but I highly recommend you play the Diablo games.

I'm pretty sure Source games won't run on a card with 96mb on it. I may be wrong though as I have seen CS:S run on the oldest pieces of crap.

Diablo I & II
Baldur's Gate I & II (BGII has some really cool mods)
Icewind Dale I & II (plus the expansion for I)

Edit: All of these games don't require a good graphics card. Any first person shooters, however, will need a higher end graphics card. So, keep that in mind, TS, when making your purchases. Don't buy a game like Mass Effect if your graphics card can't handle it. Quite simply, the game won't run.

Maybe Half Life 2 if you're lucky, but definitely not Portal.

I heavily doubt those games would run well with TS's specs.

You'll need something much better than a 9500GT if you want to run Skyrim. You might also want to upgrade your RAM.

For now, just go for the classics: Half-Life, Deus Ex, Duke Nukem 3D, Grand Theft Auto III... just off the top of my head.

League of Legends it's free, and if you dont like it just uninstall. I suggest just trying it first, its all online and although the learning curve is pretty steep. It's worth it

It isn't really. I have a dual core Phenom II at 4.0ghz and it still struggles with some newer games (Bad Company 2 for example)

Ah, I thought you meant the Pentium.

Just save for a GTX 460 over the next few months and you'll be sorted for a couple years.

Worms Armageddon. It's practically the ONLY game my graphics card supports (yes, I have a Pentium 4 with a graphics card from the stone age), other than Rpg Maker games and Solitaire.

Unreal Tournament FOR SURE!

I played that game for a good few years, doesn't even need a good computer (Unless the map you're playing is really well done and high quality)
