Any good games for a very very old Pc?

first of all this computer sucks, and im not getting a new one till this one busts and dies out on me which i had to play 300 bucks to fix but still it came with a 80gb upgrade whacko...

any ways i have a windows xp home edition (not built for games lol) , 128mb ram, 1.4ghz , 1400 mhz, direct 9.0c , are ther any games that are good and work on this type of computer , i have Ghost Recon and it work fine but for the graphics is minimum,

so .. again any good games?

There should be heaps of be heaps of good games... try all the old sim cities, or empire earth (the first ver.). Go to a game store and look in the bargain bin. You can get bundled games for less than $30.
If your PC can run xp, then you can still play heaps of games...and new ones...just at low res. The other option is buy a cheap GFX card..if you have and 8xAGP slot, get an old radeon 9600 or nvidia fx5200 and youll be cookin on gas for less than $80 , just look on trade me...
