In search of games that can run offline and run on a win 7 SP1 32bit 1 GB RAM system

A friend just dropped off a computer that was a flea market find and his whole 'plan' was to use it to play games such as Starcraft, Medieval II, etc. But Steam requires a minimum of 4 GB's RAM to run, and his 'monitor' is a TV that runs at a very funky resolutions, and even Starcraft does not seem to run, not sure what the issue is, but it loads, but does not display anything. So I am looking for a list of games that could be played in a system like this, he likes RPG's.

~2% of current players have 3GB of RAM or less, so I'm not sure how you decided Steam required 4GB.

According to a Google search, it said it needed 4GB, but regardless, the RAM installed is DDR2 800 mhz, and Steam takes every little bit of system memory, and I had to restart the computer to regain control.

 

Steam SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

OS. Windows 7 SP1/8.1/10 - 64bit.

CPU. Intel Core i5-3470 / AMD FX 4350.

RAM. 4 GB.

VGA. NVIDIA GTX 670 / AMD Radeon HD 7870.

DirectX. 11.0.

Hard Drive Space Required. 40 GB.

Resolution. 1280 x 720.

I don't know about the specific requirements for these games, but my laptop is pretty old and it can run the following:

  • DEFCON
  • Frozen Synapse
  • FTL: Faster Than Light
  • Sheltered
  • Sunless Sea
  • Uplink

With that said, I've just seen your post about the laptop having 800Mhz RAM. I think your best bet will be browser-based games.

Yeah I'm beginning to think the same thing. He paid $40 for it, and to upgrade the RAM would cost much more then that, so do i tell him he's SOL?

Those would be for specific game in Steam rather than Steam itself.  Steam runs fine on integrated graphics chips and minimum spec Windows systems.

 

I have yet to find any actual posted requirements for Steam itself other than Windows 7 and up.
