The original Half-Life + Blue Shift and Opposing Force
N.O.L.F. and you can probably also run N.O.L.F. 2
Clive Barker's: Undying
Battlefield 1942 + Mods\Expansions
If you don't mind really old graphics: DOOM

Many more that I can't think of right now

This is the problem.
Chnage it - you can still get reasonable AGP cards that would leave this in the dust.
Nothing will run properly with that, nothing decent anyway, not even HL.

I was looking through one of my pc mags the other day and saw a review for a new AGP GPU from Gigabyte. Cant remember what the name of it was but I think it had like 256mb of ram

Even this is a huge improvement:

Half Life won't run on a Geforce 4? I think you've been playing too much Crysis and have forgotten how little GPU power a game from 1998 needs...

8878 Looks suspiciously like MSI product number, so it's probably one of these: http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=22002.0

The early call of duty games are worth a shot
What is an 8878?
I'm -still- using an Athlon 1800+ and GeForce 4 Ti4200
