Space Empires IV and V. Simple graphics but really in depth gameplay. Picked them up when they were on sale on Steam a few weeks ago and play them. I'm still trying to grasp the concepts of empire management and fleet management. There's tons of options in the games, well worth the price I picked them up for.

Didn't expect so many kickass replies, thanks. Checking one out at a time. Just got Heroes of Might and Magic 3 off GoG (almost went for 4 but did more research).

Command & Conquer: The First Decade (except maybe Generals, my 2005 laptop struggled with that)
Rome: Total War (should work if you set the settings to lowest)

I was able to play Rome Total War on my last PC, and that was a pretty bad one with weak integrated graphics. It's a great game, so if you can "try" it I would give it a shot.

I have resorted to using the "Can I Run It" website in the past, to check min requirements, but it's not always right (still tells me I can't play Civ 5, after about 150 hours of playing it with no problems).

Settlers 2 is a classic, bit casual though compared to the other suggestions, very easy to run though, even the newer 10th Anniversary re-release.

I think AoE3 on low settings would probably be ok. Not sure about Civ 4, it doesn't look like much but I know the Civ games are notoriously system intensive. Personally, if I couldn't run Civ 4, I'd have to just save up for an upgrade, but like I said you can always use the online "Can I Run It" test, if it says pass then you're probably good to go.
