Games that will run just fine on GMA 3100?

Can you recommend some games that will run just fine with Intel GMA 3100?

I just sold my old card and have to wait until Holy Week finishes so I can get a newer card.

Some of your old steam games might run, source games. Didn't mean to come across as harsh Jerry. What new card are you going to get?

I might get a used 8400 GS or GT 220 and use it temporarily until I can get a GTX 750 or GTX 750 Ti. Would it hurt to install the GTX 750 on a 250 or 300 W power supply? their TDPs are pretty much close because GTX 750 (non Ti) have 55W TDP while 9500 GT have 5W less TDP

From what I see, 300w is the minimum recommended

I see casual games in your future, don't fret it, enjoy, there are plenty of good ones, get Peggle.

If you were able to read my thread before (way back 4 years ago maybe), you can run a pretty cool old game like Dead Space 2. I still have my old computer running 8400GS Super with 1 GB ram and a dual core athlon md (Very low specs) with high settings in the game and maximum resolution of 1360x768 but of course no aliasing.

Cool games that i played using my low spec pc:
(you can just experiment the settings that will fit for your computer.)

Dead Space 2 and 3
Fallout 3
Devil May Cry 3 and 4
Silent Hill Homecoming
Left for Dead 2
Command and Conquer 3 and 4
Company of Heroes Tales of Valor

(these games run smoothly in my computer with a great quality for a low spec computer) and i believe it will run better if i have a larger amount of memory for the RAM.

-if you will check the minimum requirements of these games, my pc is below the minimum but still i was able to enjoy the game.

Currently i'm playing Resident Evil 6, but this game requires a lot of memory for my old computer so unfortunately i adjusted it to 800x600 resolution but with the maximum aliasing and settings for better experience

Left 4 Dead 2 didn't work out on the 8400 GS (Remember, this 8400 GS that I am using is the first revision so it's much slower than the 2nd and 3rd revision)
