I just checked and it wont run. Your system meets the requirements *except* for your video card.

You mentioned maybe grabbing one for around $100. Newegg has a Sapphire 3850 for about $119 last I checked.

I'm fairly certain it still runs in OpenGL just like Quake 3 did ,the graphics look exactly the same.

I can't believe NO ONE has suggested *wait for it* Deus Ex.

Deep, involving, great story line, great character development and after a while, you get used to the graphics

Seriously, play that and you'll be good

TF2 eh? How does that play?

PS: I wanna shoot zombies!
Counter Strike Source should play decent for you.

If you get that game, you can play the zombie servers. They rock (back when I used to play)

It's not really an FPS in the typical sense but yes it is definitely one of the best games of all time, so I'd suggest it anyway.

Jedi Outcast gets my vote with your setup Lazer, should run nice and it's a great game to boot.

Half-Life 2 should run alright.

It was playable on a Geforce 2 MX 200.

Crysis, sure you might not be able to play it Ultra High on 1080p, but Very High should be good...

Some good suggestions and thanX. Will be checking some of them out. Just fired up SOF2 online tonight and had a blast for an hour or so.

Yea as far as upgrading my video on this system, I mean what would I really get by doing that at this point? Would have to be an AGP card.

Oh yea, I only have 1GB of ram but is P4 @ 3.01 Ghz on Abit IC7-G
