    If you could give me a long list of games that I can run on med settings or High with a fps of atleast 40+ that would be helpful

    Don't know man, that's a pretty old setup. Just buy games for cheap on steam and run them at lowest settings.

    I'd say stick with Rome 1, as Rome 2 you'll need a pretty good rig for the graphics. Or else you might be plagued with the "zombie" faces on your legions...

    You can also check out Shogun 2, should be pretty cheap for the holidays and is pretty well patched up.

    I do play total war 2 its pretty good on a gs 8400

    For some reason my card kind of overclocks itself but not very bad so that it dont damage it but it gives more performance

    Ouch, thought the minimum for Rome II will allow you to run Shogun 2. Total War Rome 1 then....

    I love total war rome I bought the gold edition and play it all the time

    I just need newer games..im kind of tired of the games I find and play I need new ones
    graphics arent an issue I just want them to be slightly behind mine say.. Geforce 6600 cards or somthing like so

    Hey KillenNinjasHD, do you have an GOG account? Or else check their website for games...I mean there are oldies that will definitely run on your rig.

    Games like:
    Total annihiliation
    Dungeon Keeper 2

    (The games can also be found in the thread mentioned by St1ckM4n.)

    Just simply think of a few games that interest you, then visit this. This will show scan your specs and tell you if you have the minimum/recommended specs.

    Also I was wondering if I could run L4D or L4D2 when I look at the specs it says I meet rec on both

    Those are good ones.

    You definitely meet the minimum specs, just the recommended you are a tad bit short on the cpu side. Should be okay though...

    But the reccomended requires a 2.0 dual core and I have a 2.6 dual core the one u see that says 3.0 is for one core only im pretty sure my comp could handle it

    Medieval 2 total war should run nicely on your pc.

    I'm going off what STEAM has on their store page.
    The recommended is Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz
    The Minimum is Pentium 4 3.0Ghz
    While you have an Pentium Dual Core 2.6Ghz

    So yes, your rig will be able to handle it, but no it will not meet recommended specs.

    Yet when I go to compare my specs on game debate ( a liar) system requirements lab (also a liar) and the own spore website it says I do meet the rec


    *EDIT*

    just ran the game and maxed all settings out runs perfectly 60+ fps no matter what I do even how crowded the area is it still stays above 55 + fps so I guess I can run it well
