Free good quality games?

I am looking for some free good quailty games that can be downloaded. I bough a Gateway computer and it came preinstalled with some games on it but you can only play them twice before they want you to buy them. Any suggestions?

your specs in the graphics department aren't that clear you have listed two graphics cards, which I'm kind of confused by.

Anyhow without more detail this was the first to come to mind

I have 2 graphics cards. An on board ATI Radeon and a PCI-e Nvidia GeForce 220. I am running 1 vga monitor on the ATI and 1 vga and 1 hdmi off the Nvidia.

Surprised you have managed to get both working at once. Windows just loves to reject the mix of the two companies. Or maybe it's just something built into the driver installers themselves. (it wouldn't surprise me)
Anyhow your graphics should be capable of playing just about anything on the market, though you might have to drop settings in some of the newest stuff.
The above mentioned is a decent game somewhat like counterstrike.
FEAR combat is also still free to play, it doesn't include the single player game though.

Lord of the rings online can be played free, but honestly after about level 25ish, you'll start running out of active quest content without purchasing a pack. It is possible to max a character without doing so though.

There is ACE online which is kind of like a sci fi space fighter kind of thing.
alien swarm is available free on steam (as are a multitude of games both from known companies and indie)
America's Army 3 is also free to play, it's very involved for a shooter though it's not really something you can just jump into.
Battlestar gallatica online is free to play as well
Crossfire (another counter strike like game)
Dark Orbit I believe is still free to play and they offer prizes of real money for their monthly battle winners.
Deicide -

actually just have a look here -
All Games - Free Multiplayer Online Games

the list is real not spam or bs, they tell you if it's trial or if full services require paying.

Thanks man, I appreciate it much. And I got the 2 graphics cards to work together by having the on board one have the bois default and the Nvidia be the default for win 7.

Out of curiosity, why not run both displays from the 220?
