I'm going to get a new computer soon (the parts have been ordered) and am interested in knowing how well will my computer be able to run these games (as in, full graphics with everything maxed or not):

Half-life 2 and the sequels/mods and such
Fallout 3
Far cry 2
GTA IV
Elder scrolls IV: oblivion
Crysis
Crysis warhead
Dead space
Call of Duty 5


Feel free to recommend other games for me to purchase.

Every answer is apperciated! (well, most )

I thought that the new PS3s, while lacking true backwards compatibility, were given an emulator that could play many PS2 games.

You're missing out on some good stuff, then. I can't remember the last PC game I thought was good or exiting enough to buy within a year of its launch, let alone launch day... But then again, I'm a retro gamer.
All the TW games including x-packs (apart from those for Rome) were worth it, imo. ETW is also looking great.

At the time I was excited enough about AoE3 to buy it in the week of release, but unfortunately that was partly wasted money. It's not my kind of game, really, and the editor was unworkable to me.

The last computer game I even waited for to come out was Civ 4: BTS, which was totally worth it. Nothing since then really seemed that great, and the few games that looked good turned out to be flops, causing me to not buy (I'm looking at you, Colonization, Spore, and EE3).

I bought AoE3 at release, got bored of it, and shelved it. Then, about 3 years later, I got the expansions on a whim, reloaded it, and really enjoyed the Multiplayer. The editor was retarded, though.

As long as I have AoE, AoK, Civ 3, and Civ 4, I'm pretty much set for games. They have endless possibilities, which really makes them excellent.

You should have gotten a dual-core processor. Your video card is great, but your single-core processor really will make your ability to run games much smaller, especially in the near future.

I think I told you once that my PC is still powered by rodents in a wheel...

You serious?

Core 2 Duo is dual-core, and it's far superior than the old Intel dual-cores, which were quite inefficient.

Bah, seems like I'm only getting my computer next week. Darn holiday...

Sheesh, the suspense is killing me... (I hope not )


About Spore, I was really looking foward about getting it, but that limited installs thing is just ridiculous.

Damn you EA, damn youuuu!!!

EDIT: What the hell is wrong with me, I can't seem to be able to type correctly today. I've made like 20 spelling mistakes...
