well why do you have 4gb of ram??? I assume your using 32bit so only 3.7gb can be utilised at max and 2gb in dual channel is enough for any game 4gb I would only recommend to design and multimedia workers

How does owning an 8800 make you cheap? That's an awesome card, and I would go with hl2 for its first game, the graphics will blow you away, and the story is good too.

stalker has some pretty good graphics on high, its such a boring game though. Here are some past games I've played and liked: Doom 3, Fear + XP, Half life 2, SWAT 4, KOTOR I + II.

Oh and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 just came out so that should put your 8800 to good use.

Edit: I think the 360 one came out only.
