    Probably WoW.  EQ, any of the oldest MMO's I'm thinking.

    Drop 5$ and get yourself 3 more gigs of DDR1 man, 1gb is unacceptable for most any game made in the last 15 years period. Not to mention the obscene bottle necking you must have with well everything.

    Also to keep on topic, try RPG MO, its on steam and runs on a calculator.

    Guild Wars 1 would run easily on that.

    Shaiya from Aeria Games.

    Aion would probably run at lower settings.

    Runes of Magic used to have a small download client with reduced texture resolutions, but I think they upgraded so that might not be happy on your machine.


    Tweak All 3.0 has a utility called tweak tray that sits in your system tray and offers a tool that does a good job at freeing up system cache in XP.  Free 3/4 of memory before loading a game, and you'll open up 600 megs or so, which is more than sufficient for most 2007 era games to run.


    Wikipedia has an MMORPG list with release dates.  Look for 2007 and you should be okay unless the game has upgraded the client.  Many of the Korean games back then had low hardware requirements.


    Don't sweat the 256 meg video card.  Lots back then ran at low settings even on 128.


    I'll go so far as suggesting a specific game:  Asura Force

    Your machine falls into the recommended specs.

    OS: Windows XP SP3 / Windows 7 / Windows Vista
    DirectX: DirectX 9.0C and above
    CPU: P4 2.0G / Athlon X2 7750
    RAM: 1GB
    GraphicsCard: Geforce2 MX 400 / 64M

    Anarchy Online perhaps?

    Although with their latest graphical update it might run like a dog...ohh wait.... nevermind.....  >:)

    If it's that old 1 GB of ram may be the max.

    I would say GW1 as well, and DDO. But you seriously need to check with all your friends and see if someone don't have an old GFX card lying around. If it have DDR3 you could also buy 4 x 1 gig memories for close to nothing, if it is older rams check with your frinds as well. The CPU is old and all and far from good (to say the least) but the GFX card is ancient and was crap when it was new 15 years ago and 1 gig ram sucked already back then.

    I assume money is tight at the moment but a lot of people have better parts just collecting dust at home and I am sure someone you know have some better crap they can give or borrow you. 
    If it's that old 1 GB of ram may be the max. 
    Yeah, if it is older than a Pentium. My old Cyrix 686 had 16 gig max and that was '94. Seriously, this one will have between 16 and 64 depending on the motherboard. P4 are indeed old but they had a pretty good capacity for ram, the problem just was that it was expensive so most people had 4 gigs for a gaming computer and 2 or less for an office machine.

    Ryzom is a good one, that is still around. Also SWGEMU, EQ project 1999, Shadowbane emulator, Ulitma online classic, any browser game, and hmm Uncharted waters online.

    Agree with GW one. Also not literally an MMO but private servers allow for an experience like one is Neverwinter Nights (Bioware)    
     Everquest 2 might be playable if you were able to get another gig or so of RAM. Though the Gfx may hold it back. EQ1 for sure though.
    Yet my number one pick would be Asheron's Call. Still the best MMO experience I have ever had and still very much worth playing today. Your system would be fine. Good luck and good gaming! =)

    That's not low spec, that thing came out of a museum. Pentium 4 was popular when I was in elementary school lool.

    I don't think even GW1 will run properly on that thing, it will be laggy and will look ugly as hell. 

    Current WoW - no way, vanilla WoW used to have a minimum requirement of 512 MB RAM. But it will be laggy as hell but it will run.

    SO yeah Gw1 and vanilla wow will run but you will get like 20fps on low-med settings.

    If they still exist they are quite likely aimed at the mobile faction of gaming, and not PC.
    Well, considering that an ipad air 2 is a billion times more powerful than his PC, even current mobile games won't run on that hardware.

    NWN1 definitely highly recommended!

    WoW that's actually lower than my computer from 2001, I was going to recommend Blade and Soul as it's really well optimized, but damn, I don't even know if you could play Maplestory.

    Actually, I am more worried that he have less memory then my Pentium 3 had even earlier and that the graphics card wasn't really meant for gaming even when it was new.

    But GW will run on it: http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Running_the_game He actually is somewhere over recommended requirements so it wont be that laggy.

    This should work on low/mid graphic settings. Six years ago I played it on a PC built in 2003 (1gb ram, Amd Ahtlon XP 2400+, Radeon 9700 128mb memory) with most setting on low and some on medium.
