You could play Modern Warfare 2. Same engine. Same Frame rates. I also play a free to play MMPORG golf game if you like that stuff that is really good. Google Shot Online. It's not a hardware pig at all.

Have you tried graw / graw2?

Make sure you can keep your system cool running graw2 though.

GRAW2 might be a little much. That is a graphics hog. Good game though. Too bad UBI dropped support for it so soon.

Hawx
company of heroes
counter strike source
Mechwarrior 4 Merc (will be legally free soon)
Red Alert 2
Titan Quest

Also we have 2 computers that have the same Intel graphic set, and there is a modded driver out there that will let you play a few more games, its not supported by Microsoft but has a really large following (and I use it).

Here's one you might want to try. It's subscription based but is the game that alot of professional drivers race and actually use for training. It's that good. I've played it and it is intense. If you enjoy racing sim's this is as good as it gets. It's called iracing.
