what games could be played with a intel pentium dual core processor?

I'm hungry for a good game on my 5-year-old computer.
Here are the specs:
Intel Pentium Dual Core 1.60GHz Possessor.
2.00GBs of memory (RAM)
32-bit operating system.
Windows 7 (I don't want to tell which :)).
Just tell me some good 2009 games. :ange:

  1. I know what you can play:

    Age of Empires III
    Lord of the Rings:Battle for Middle Earth II
  2. A lot of games are GPU bound so depending on your graphics card you could stretch a bit.
  3. What graphics card do you have? Which model of Pentium? Can you include screenshots
    from GPU-Z and CPU-Z? With that type of CPU, it's probably not worthwhile have anything
    above a GTX 460 for the GPU as games will just be CPU-bound; if you currently have a
    GPU which is a lot slower, used 460s are cheap on eBay. What model motherboard do
    you have? Grab a screenshot of the motherboard tab from CPU-Z. Perhaps you could
    increase the RAM a bit, and note that faster Pentium chips from that era are usually
    very cheap these days.

    I don't know what kind of games you like to play, but older titles I'm still playing include
    Oblivion IV, Stalker, COD WaW, Borderlands, Far Cry, Far Cry 2, etc. I would mention Crysis
    aswell, but I don't think your system would be good enough for that even with a better CPU.

    Either way, don't try to play above 1920x1080. Indeed, 1680x1050 is probably the max one
    should use for that level of hardware, assuming a reasonable card like a 460.

    PS. I use MWSnap (free program) to grab screenshots of app windows, or the whole desktop.

    Or the built in snipping tool
