    I have an Intel 945GM express chipsets integrated graphics in my laptop. In this thread, I will list great games that you can play on a GMA.

    First. Here's a list of GMAs from worst to best for performance:
    Intel Extreme Graphics
    Intel Extreme Graphics 2
    Intel GMA 500
    Intel 800/850/8xx GMA series
    Intel 915GM
    Intel 945GM/GZ/G/GMA series (950 GMA)
    Intel 965/x3100M graphics
    Intel X4500MHD graphics
    Newest and best: Intel HD Graphics

    All the gmas before the latest and newest were rather weak, and the newest one has the same amount of power as an nVidia 9400M and has built in Turbo overclocking.

    But that doesn't mean that you can't play games on older integrated chipsets.

    Here's a nice list of games and graphics settings:

    NFS Most Wanted: 1280 by 1024 all highest settings
    Need for Speed Carbon: 1024-768 res and medium-high detail
    COD: MW/MW2: Both of these at 800 by 600 all settings low and 2X Anti aliasing.
    Halo: 1280 by 1024 all settings high
    Halo 2: All settings low
    FEAR: All settings medium and 1024 by 768 res
    Command and Conquer: Generals Zero Hour 1680 by 1050 res all settings high
    More soon:

    NOTE: Shader support only started with the GMA 915, so anything before that has no Pixel Shader 2.0 effects.

    The newest Intel GMA HD Graphics (X5700MHD) can play MW2 at highest settings at 1024 by 768 no AA. Mind that this IGP will have better performance with an i5 CPU than an i3 since it can Turbo overclock higher.
