My friend upgraded his system and gave this card to me for free, is it pretty outdated or will it handle some good games

It is quite out dated but it's a little contender. You'll get medium or medium-high settings out of most games if you don't play on 1080p.

You can still run some modern games just not on high or ultra. I have a 6570 and its ranked very slightly higher then yours and I can run BF3 on medium no issues whatsoever and skyrim on ultra with about 30 fps. A lot of it depends on your resolution though i'm running at 1024x768 so its not HD.

"HD" starts at 1024x720, actually.
9800T will play most games out on passable settings.

I had a 9800GT before my new build and it will play most games at 1024x768 at medium settings. Obviously no AA and no/low AF.
