Windows 7: Games with low requirements

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
Games with low requirements

I have a new toshiba satellite laptop that was not built for gaming. However, I would like to purchase a decent rts or rpg for it, without sacrificing a lot of hard drive space. I love age of mythology, so I was wondering if it would work on Windows 7. I would like a game recommendation for my school laptop. I just want something that will work and run smoothly. I've heard of issues with age of empires 2, warcraft 3, and other games. please help!!!

OK, seriously, please stop multiposting, edit your posts instead.

Right click the Computer icon -> Manage
In Computer Management click Device Manager on the left then find "Display adapters" for see which GPU you have
Under "Sound, video and game controllers" is where your sound card should be.

A 4.2 on WEI is good enough to play even some newer games on lower settings.

World of Warcraft, believe it or not, is a low powered game with most of the settings down. You should try that. It may seem nerdy, but it's actually pretty fun!

You know what's funny? I built my computer with an 4 core i5 and it says the WEI for the processor is 4.7. the WEI is pretty retarded, don't worry about that.
