    Yeah I missed it again; I really need my beauty sleep. :p

    And yeah, Driver's a great title. Any of the games, upto Driver: Parallel Lines, should work on those specs too, IMHO. Adding 'em to the list now.

    Another game you might want to add is League of legends. Its free to play to a point. The origins of its game type stems from a popular warcraft 3 custom game called dota. Heroes of newerth is the same game type but I don't think its free, neither one have high requirements.

    One game i got alot of pleasure out of a few years ago (when i had a kinda rubbish PC) was a game called Street Racing Syndicate (or SRS for short)...It was Midnight clubish, but it had some really good side mission stuff, and the car modding was more detailed.

    It's Wiki page.

    Heh there is a very old game from 1995 called fury 3 in which you fly around and blow stuff up, not sure if its graphics are worthy though ^^.

    No Portal? Also The Sims 2 is a very good game if you just want to mess around and make batman fall in love with spiderman... hey, we've all done it :p

    Make sure you have a lot of space though for all those expansion packs you'll say you won't get but then get them anyway...

    Portal's part of the Orange Box, but I'll put it in there anyways.

    The Sims 2 is already on there as well.

    Tremulous

    Hey! Tremulous is also a great game that doesn't require that much.

    Heck even people with a RAM of 512MB or 256MB can run Tremulous smoothly. Also, people with a processor of 700MHz can run it!

    It's an Online Alien Multi-Player FPS game that can be downloaded here

    Here's a picture

    Hope you guys like it! :)

    I can add Onimusha: Demon's Siege since, to the best of my knowledge, the first game is restricted in availability to some parts of the world.

    That it is; I'll add it along with some other indie faves of mine like Braid and World of Goo. Thanks. :)
