I know that there is a dedicated game spin which as I am writing is under download. I would just like to know which game can run on my old linux box here. The details are as below Processor: Intel® Core™ i3 CPU M 350 @ 2.27GHz × 4 RAM : 2.8 GB Graphics : Intel® Ironlake Mobile (It's old as I said)

Which is the best game that there is that can run on my useless box?

To find out what works the best on your computer you will have to try some out. If you have 3D acceleration, then you should be at least partly successful with some of the older games.

The title of your question suggests you're interested in open source games, yet the body of the questions suggests you want any games.

For open source games, just scan down the package manager - you can search for games in Yumex quite easily, try a few out, you'll probably have the most success with these, there are plenty of strategy games that can run quite happily on the simpler graphics chipsets.

For commercial games, of course, you should really try steam which is available for install from the repository. They have commercial games that you can purchase, but also (more importantly when you're unsure of the power of your hardware) plenty of free-to-play games, samplers, demos, etc. that will help you determine just how good your hardware is with these games. You may find your hardware is easily up to some of the older games like HalfLife.

Are there any specific sites that I should visit?

The Steam app lets you browse through available games, and the package manager will present quite a few. If you want to look broader, then try to see what's being developed in the open source world. Then perhaps look across the wider commercial games network perhaps IGN and the like.
