    not sure is this is the correct thread and i hope the mods can move it if its not.

    so i have a white macbook from 2007
    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook2,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.16 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 4 MB
    Memory: 1 GB
    Bus Speed: 667 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: MB21.00A5.B07
    Graphics: intel GMA 950

    i was wondering what are some good games tht would be able to play without upgrading anything on the computer? i downloaded counter strike 1.6 and have been playing there a little big but its not really my favorite.

    im really wanting a first person shooter game and really wanting to be able to play online.. thanks in advance for the help

    On the fence
    That graphics card will prevent you from playing any new games (aside from maybe minecraft or the sims), and it is not upgradeable.

    There's not much you can play with 1 GB Memory, 2 GB memory is where the good games are.

    Such as L4D, CoD4, Fallout, etc.

    But with 1 GB Memory, you can run games like Minecraft, Halo, etc.

    But all must run on low graphics.

    Most Windows games run through the program called cider, this allows the platform conversion.

    Your selection of games will be much wider under Windows as well, as gaming performance will be improved. Example: Half-Life 2 is unplayable under OS X on my MacBook (slightly newer than yours) but perfectly playable under Windows.

    Braid and World of Goo are two great games that would run fine on your MacBook. Aquaria is also excellent.
