i just recently restored an old pc of mine and i want to put some games in it. i haven't been playing for a while so i don't know which games are good and not and if it can run on my pc.

128mb vid card / 1gig ram

i like rpg and shooter games. or both if there's such a thing.

Counter Strike Source/ Half Life 2 or Far Cry would probably be good.

It really depends whether it's PCI, AGP or PCIe. If it's PCI, good luck with anything 2002 and beyond, although if it's either of the other two, you should be good up until 2005-2006, again depending on the genre or graphical fidelity. (3D RTSs will chug, as will graphics-intensive FPSs)

counter strike source, half life 2. world of warcraft, FEAR, battlefield 2, guild wars, left 4 dead plays good. some good games that can be played. it kind of matters on what format the video card is. there is also systemrequirementlab.com it scans ur hardware to see what it is and how well it will play.

There kinda is, taubla rasa. But i've heard it's not anything spectacular. CS:S Would be fine, HL:2, come to think of it, left4dead could be okay perhaps, it does run on the source engine. There all FPS's though, You'll have to ask someone else about the RPG's.

Call of Duty 1 + United Offensive, No One Lives Forever 2, Half-Life 2 and Deus Ex.

if your card's pixel shader version is less than 2.0 than it would support the games released till 2006 but if it is 2.0 than it will support the games till 2008
