Okay, let me first say that this is a question about our work machines graphics cards, not my own (a nice Geforce 4 4400Ti !!) !

Basically on xmas eve my bosses are planning on setting up 4 machines so that some kids can come in and play games (and me with any luck :D ). They're speedy enough (P4 1.7Ghz, WinXP Prof.), but the only thing I'm worried about is the ****ty graphics card..

So... shall I tell my bosses to forget it or wot ?!

Games like half-life and all the mods that go with it and quake 2 should run ok i am sure other people will have other games from their past that will run on those systems...long time since i had one of those (but i did have 1:D ).

yup those cards would cr@p out with the new games but something like half-life... and there are many mods for it... or the older ut engines SHOULD work adequately... try it out first and see if the frame rate is passable for the kids :)

don't compare it to your 4400 coz that would be a shame lol...

Cheers for that ! I'm going to be doing some *ahem* testing (which means me sitting at work playing games !), so I'll give Half Life a go - knowing my company though, they probably won't allow it due to the violence levels - doh ! :D

Anyone got any other games which are decent (and will work using this crappy card), but aren't, y'know, violent ? - for the kiddies bless 'em !!

You can get Need For Speed 3 and 4 pretty cheap. They will fly on that card, my old PC has that ATI in it (now a server LOL). They're great classic racing games :)

Another game that will run good on that card is Midtown Madness... and also try the motocross games and stuff... they are non-violent and fun to play. Have you ever seriously considered to ask the bosses if they would put in some GeForce 2 MX cards?? like some 32 meg ones.. they would run everything a lot better than a Rage 128. plus you can use detonator drivers with them in XP and they will perform better. ATI is really bad about drivers... just thought...

try using Morrowind. Highly detailed, and the best adventure/rpg game for PC.
