If u like any Nintendo 64 Games you can download Project64

And download ROM's (Games) on

Those will run amazing on your computer, Those also run just fine on am OLD dell that i have. You can also use the controller for them,

Controller Directions: Plug in controller, Start Project64, Click on options, Click on controller Plug in, Play all Day, Sleep, Ect. Ect.

If you want good graphics in a racing game, GTR 2 is the best. Ultra-realistic though, if you get easily frustrated with games it's not really for you.

A pretty good and fun free racing game is Trackmania:

Besides racing, you might want to check out a flight sim or something, those are usually pretty fun with gaming pads. Flight Sim X won't run too good on that PC, but 2004 would.

The Half life's are good FPS games with a storyline.. No idea how well they'll run on your system, though.

Half Life 1 would run maxed out on your system, 2 probably at medium settings.

If you've never played Halo before, get that.

Deus Ex is probably my favorite game of all time. It was game of the year in I think 2001. Since it's relatively old, it'll run maxed out on that machine. It's basically like a role playing FPS. There are multiple paths you can take throughout the game, and based on your actions there are I think 3 different endings. If you want a good storyline, get Deus Ex.

The Grand Theft Auto's are another good choice. I love both San Andreas and Vice City.
