Battlefield 2 wouldn't run that well on that system due to the CPU and GPU. My friend used to run it on a Sempron 3000+ with a 9550 and 1GB RAM, was pretty bad. Source games will run nicely though, CS:S looked good on my MX-2 64MB.

Halo PC FTW!

WoW would run

if you're into Turn Based RPG's check out the Might and Magic series, 6 and 7 being the best IMO and Baulders Gate I and II. I liked II a lot more than I.

I remember playing quite a bit of MM7 myself. That's a pretty old game, though, don't you only need like PII to run it?

CS 1.6, San Andreas, and as said before, the older Command and Conquer and Total War games.

Oh if you like RPGs than you could try Neverwinter Nights and the expansions (and thousands of available modules).
