    If it's one of the 'better' integrated chipsets you could probably get away with some old-skool fps games. Quake, Quake II and Half-Life are all low resource games. hell, even Quake 3 should be playable on the recent 'geforce 2' class integrateds from nvidia and intel. If your chipset has no hardware opengl or d3d support at all, these games (except q3) also have software rendering which will run well on just about any video card and system made in the last 8 years or so.

    If your cpu is reasonable (p3 or higher) you could also consider checking out the arcade/console emulation scene. Lots of old-skool, but fun games to play. Very few of these games/emulators require any sort of 3d accelerator whatsoever, especially for the older games/hw.

    Half-Life (i haven't had a PC that couldn't play this game)

    Stronghold (plays on my P3 600MHz machine with 8MB integrated video just fine)

    Get a resource friendly emulator and get some cool roms. An old comp should be able to run any nes or snes emulator.
