    Solitaire, probably.

    You can't even run recent versions of Windows on that GPU, let alone Windows and a game at the same time.  If you want to play games, you need a new computer.

    My computer ran Windows XP when it had similar specs.  If you could put a graphics card in it, you might be able to play 2D MMOs like Ultima and Maple Story.  It sounds like you might be using a laptop though.  If that is the case, look for Scorched Earth or similar games to play.  


    Consoles and handheld gaming is much cheaper to get started than PC gaming.  However, PC gaming pays off in the long-run if you play MMOs.  The problem with console games is that the vast majority of them are designed to be played for a week then tossed away for a new one.  If you consider the price of a console being $400 when they are new and $60 for games every other week, you could be spending over $1,000 in 5 months or less.  That same $1,000 would get you a decent gaming computer capable of playing many MMOs which can provide months or longer of entertainment.  Everyone is different, so the above may not even apply to you.
