    Dungeon Runners from NCSoft is free to download and play. Pretty fun mindless game. If you want the extra special items you have the option to purchase them with credit or debit card.

    Chaos Online (Never played it though)

    Global MU online (Another one I've never played)

    All 3 of these are similar to Diablo style gameplay. Like I said though, out of the 3 I have only played Dungeon Runners which is pretty good.

    You could possibly look into Guild Wars, that runs pretty well on older systems

    Yeah it is, havn't had it installed for a few month now though. Player base seems to be thinning out as a lot of people are on Eye of the North now.

    Thing that bugs me though is I am far into the Nightfall campaign and have to kill the sorceror woman but she has loads of titan type creatures in the same area. There never seems to be anyone about to team up with and I just can't do it with the henchmen.

    Is that a subtle hint? Heh.

    I've long since lost the install disk, but I enjoyed what time I had playing it. Nice to know it's still going.

    Na, I play LOTRO now!!!

    Can't be bothered with Guild Wars aymore really, once you hit level 20 it kinda gets a bit tedious after playing the 3 campaigns. No more levels so it is just loot and financial gain, not forgetting some really tough bosses that are like 10+ levels above you making it excessively hard if you can't get into mentioned team.

    Sorrows Furnace free addon was excellent though must admit.

    I've been checking out quite a few free MMOs recently, and all have been fairly low-spec friendly. Archlord is hopelessly generic and probably not worth your time. Pirates of the Caribbean Online is great if you're a fan of the films. Dynasty Warriors Online is all in Japanese, so a bit of a chore really.

    Guild Wars is really good, though you will have to buy it first. There's always people on though, and it's all really well put together. Plus it's my favourite game for PvP.

    But the pick of the free bunch has been Air Rivals, an MMO based around flight combat. It's unlike most others I've played, in that it's propelry real time - you want to level up, you have to shoot down enemies with your aircraft. Although it has the usual MMO grinding to make your ship more powerful, generally you'll have to become a skilled player to get far. Plus it's low-spec.

    Guild Wars isn't entirely free, since you have to purchase the initial game (and expansions, but they gotta make money somewhere) but there is no subscription and it is an extremely polished, high-end game that can compete with most if not all subscription mmorpg and the graphics are somewhat demanding but no where near newer releases, last I knew, which is awhile. I'll agree somewhat with the "reaching 20th level" downplay but the expansions are supposed to alleviate that. It is worth the cost and somewhat addictive and encourages a high-level of co-operative play in the game storyline with rather intricate class vs. class vs. class, etc., combat in the PvP environments, if you get involved with that.
    Their update/download system, I should add, is excellent. While you play already downloaded worlds/material the game is downloading neighboring, potentially connecting material, that your system has not yet collected/updated. It also introduced a, if I am not mistaken, a rather revolutionary system of "mini-packet" downloads that can pickup anywhere it left off, with the ending result being that your game is usually always updating itself in the background. A good internet connection is an absolute must for uninterrupted gameplay.
    Peace OUT, peeps.

    Guild Wars runs pretty well on a very low spec Acer Aspire One netbook (which also struggles with GTA 3!) so it may run OK for you ghostly. Like other have said though, it is zero subscription \o/ but you do have to pay for the client :(

    I guess it's pretty cheap to buy now though as its about 4 years old.

    Guild Wars now (finally) has a free trial download available:

    It plays quite well even on very low spec machines with the graphics options turned down.

    I'd suggest looking at Atlantica Online and Runes of Magic, but I think both have somewhat higher minimum spec requirement than some of the other games suggested so far, but you would only be out your time downloading them if you give them a try. Both are free to play (with Item Shop bit).

    If you still have your account name (usually the email address you registered under) and password, you can download the entire client for free and log back in. You don't need the actual install discs.

    Failing that, if you still have the keycode(s) you can contact customer support and they'll get your account changed to a new email address and password.

    Even if you don't want to play anymore, all your characters and stuff are still there, plus any birthday presents your characters are due (mini-pets!!!). Worth it just to log in now and then and see what is happening. Depending on how long you've been gone they've added some minor things like M.O.X. and the quests to get him, storybooks, etc.

    RuneScape is built to run on low spec machines so you could give that a try.

    Really liked League of Legends, APB Reloaded and Sword2.
    They have a promotion running at for free NPC cards for Sword2 if you want to check it out.

    well, i consider Adventurers Guild might be suitable for you. Adventurers Guild is a turn-based fantasy role-playing game of arena combat, adventuring, and exploration that you play through email and the web. And it is free to play. Maybe you can have a try.^^
    For a moment there I misread it as Adventurers Glod. Lol, imagine!

    It's a bit ancient now but LOTRO is pretty solid and runs well on older systems.
