Default Good games to play in a LAN.

I just finished having a LAN party with about 8 other friends, and we're thinking that we need a new game to play. At the moment we're only playing Half Life 1 Multiplayer, and Counter Strike 1.5. Anyone have any suggestions to some good games that would run on a 1.3GHz machine, or one that are about as demanding as HL?

Age of Empire, Warcraft and Starcraft, those are RTS

Wolfenstein: Enemy Terriroty and is a free download this game is one of the best multiplayer ever created.

I didn't said BF2 because If I'm correct you will need a better PC and that games is better played with groups of 16 people or more.
