If you're into FPS's then Quake 4 and Rainbow 6 Vegas looks shiney. If I was building a new system now I'd be aiming for CoD 4. That looks very lush

do not overclock more than 10.0% of any original number and you "should" be fine.

I personally wouldn't bother overclocking an e6700 as you've got plenty of grunt out of the box.  If you still want to then you should be able to get the e6700 up to 3ghz with very little effort - however I'd recommend getting a quality 3rd-party CPU cooler first.

Although its not out yet do a search for crysis, your machine should be able to play that fairly well when it comes out.. GTA4 is looking nice as well.. As for games out now, im addicted to supreme commander like a fiend.. I dont play racing games on PC, ive got forza 2 on xbox360 for that.. now to purchase that damn expensive wireless racing wheel :-(

if you like hardcore action or some [expletive removed],


try ghost recon advance war fighting , or warrock , for warrock you can download the game client instead of buying it around 550mb download, graw you must buy

but both games will work fine and perfectly with your computer

atleast have a high speed broadband, which is required for the games

[Moderator edit (MF): warned via PM, pease stop using expletives]
