Help me find games that will run on this laptop!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
So I'm going on a rather long holiday in a couple of weeks, with lots of down time. Basically I need to know what can play decently on this rig, single player! A shooter is fine, but an rpg as well is tolerable. I'm running xp pro 32 bit on it. Basically your favorite game that would get playable (25 plz) frames on decent settings!


Official Specs: Gateway NX570S

Pertinent Specs-
CPU: Intel Dual Core T2080 @ 1.73ghz
Memory: 2x1gb Kingston DDR2 667 pc5300 Dual Channel
HDD: 60gb SATA 5400rpm
Graphics: Onboard Intel i945GM15
1280x1024 native res 15.4" lcd screen

Thanks

1.) I said single player, no online.
2.) This is a pc, final fantasy need not apply
3.) I have dosbox, but I'd prefer something better!

I've seen NFSMW run well on the 945G, but I tested it on my onboard and pulled out my GHPU and was epic failure tbh, 10FPS

Shooters are fine as I said, but an rpg sorta like kotor is fine as well. Nothing too horribly fast paced, as ill be playing this on the road with my trackball.

I doubt my pc would play kotor, eh? Basically suggest anything but HL1 since I've beaten it ohhhhh about 50 times now

Neverwinter Nights, Baulder Gate are both EXCELLENT games.
