Unreal 2k4, great choice. Sounds like your computer can do better, but still a kickass game.

No One Lives Forever number 1 and 2. Awesome game, albeit flawed. If anything, play the second one; it fixed some of the flaws from the first one.

EDIT: Oh yeah, with AVP coming out for 360, play Aliens Versus Predator 1 and 2. You can pick up the first one for 5 bucks on steam I think. You can play as an alien and in the beginning, you EAT YOUR WAY OUT OF A DUDE'S CHEST. Yeah, it's sweet.

God, those games were fucking AWESOME and SCARY as shit, especially AVP2. You feel SO helpless as a marine, and you feel like a fucking badass as a Predator, just like you should. And yeah, the first three levels of the Alien campaign are amazing, so true to Alien tradition. Too bad the AVP movies sucked. Had they made a movie out of the AVP2 storyline, it would have been awesome.

Specs of new PC? Who buys a new computer and omits that from the thread announcing they bought a new computer? Shame.
