Strategy games suggestions
Looking for some old strategy titles that'll run on older hardware. 1GB RAM, dual core processor, intel integrated graphics old. Sadly, can't carry the gaming rig PC around on trips, so I make do with an old laptop.
Got Civ4 running atm, recently tried King of the Dragon Pass on Eraamion's suggestion (I'd recommend it if anyone's interested).
So, hit me up with some titles. Turn based or RTS/turn based style, or slow RTS (like sins of a solar empire slow). I like long games with empire building over zerg rushes.
Have the same specs on my old laptop. Here are some of my favourite TB games it can run:
Crusader Kings, Stronghold (oops, not really TB, still cool), TW: Shogun, TW: Medieval, Battle for Wesnoth, Disciples I and II, Age of Wonders I and II, WH40k: Chaos Gate.
If you're not turned off by really dated graphics, you could try Master of Magic.
Try Celtic Tales if you liked KotDP.
Settlers 2 is fun if you like that kind of thing it's free from abandonware to.
Then there is chaos gate which is a fun game for a turn based game or any of the Xcom games,there is also homeworld for RTS it's more slow paced then starcraft.
Also if you download dosbox you can run pretty much any old title.
Panzer General 2
MOO II (Master of Orion)
Jagged Alliance 2
Can you confirm it will run with built-in graphics card and only 1GB RAM? I really really doubt it.

The Civ4 mod Rhys and Fall. Its amazing. Its everything civ 5 should be and more. Its beyond amazing. Currently playing it myself. Hundreds of hours of gameplay, even for civ4 veterans, it changes the game -alot- and for the better. It comes bundled in Beyond the Sword expansion.
Here is a list of the new features.
A 124x68 world map with enlarged Europe for better gameplay
Dynamic rise and fall of civilizations
Stability management: unstable empires will risk secessions and civil wars
Players can control more than one civilization in a single game (can take control of an ancient civilization and later "jump" to a new one)
Dynamic spread of resources
Civ-specific customised AI that adapts its behaviour to the Earth map and sends settlers to found cities in their historical place, with their historical name
Python events that reproduce historical attacks of the barbarians
Plague that will offer a hard challenge spreading throughout the world
Unique powers and victory conditions for each civilization (this feature has inspired Civilization Revolution)
Unique victory conditions for each civilization
World Congresses where cities are traded
World wars, thanks to a revised alliance system
New flag and new terrain graphics, including a new terrain: marshes
Rule changes that will give this mod the feel of old Rhye’s of Civilization
A new civilization: Babylon, and other non playable civs (for Warlords version only)
Got Rhye's and Fall from Heaven.

Civ V was pretty good, but two expansions later, it's the complete package. Pick up Brave New World.
if you would enjoy WWII as opposed to fantasy/space - "Combat MIssion."
AdvancedSquadLeader/Armor that got computerized.
