Intel® Celeron® processor 1007U

solitaire max settings will get you 45 fps

but honestly civ2/fo2 should play fine on hd 2500+1.5ghz processor since those games are before the millenium

That will not run anything. It's literally that bad. What's your budget?

You'll probably be able to play the ones that would run on a pentium 4. Doubt you'd run something like FTL.

This one is way better than that PoS and costs less too:

Go with this one. That screen is at least 4K.

Guys, look at the games he wants to play.

Though, gonna come clean with you TC, even with the age of the games you want to play, that PC might give you some issues. Buck up for something better.

Hmmm, didn't realize FTL had such high requirements. Maybe I'll just drop it from the list. It was more for the spaceship roguelike novelty rather than because I like the game or genre.
