    First off, forget UT2003. No more master server so there are next to zero players.

    UT2004 will have to be run at very modest settings. Probably 800x600, medium or default graphical settings. You might be able to turn a couple things up, but the default settings should be pretty playable at 800x600, maybe even 1024x768.

    Just don't hold your breath for good ONS performance however. ONS maps are huge and processor intensive. Couple this with large online games and you have a death sentence for older computers.

    Here are some:

    No One Lives Forever (sneak around to hear all the funny conversations, then cap them)
    Ghost Recon
    Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
    Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
    Soldier of Fortune II
    Diablo 2
    James Bond 007: NightFire (your system is near minimum requirement)

    I was able to run the first Call of Duty on a QS 933mhz with a wimpy geforce 4MX, toned down but pretty smoothly even in multiplayer. Halo was about 800x600 with most things turned down.

    Your 6200 graphics card will be better than what I had. However, I also had a gig of Ram and a 7200rpm HD with an 8mb cache. Your low ram will mean slow load times on some games and a speedier drive couldn't hurt.
