You have lots of hours of gaming pleasure ahead of you. I much welcome another elderly gamer here :-)

Hello there, guess Ill jump in here too. Im 47 and have been gaming since I was a teenager at the local arcade. I just Built my first pc after years of HP's. Thats how I got here, posting about advice for it.Yeah single player is great, but let me tell ya Wirlwind, your missin out on the best part of the pc gaming. My wife bought me Micrsoft Motocross Madness in '98 and the Zone turned me on to a whole new world. I'm a member of OTHG (Over The Hill Gang) a group of guys over 30 that Play together regularly.We originated from MCM2 but play many games. Mostly now I play COD4, GTR2 (racing sim, we have league on Fri Nights with the Misfit Guys< another tight group of guys), Rfactor or Mx vs ATV. As you see we're mostly racing but I ( with COD4) have recently gottin into the FPS side of it. We Use Ventrillo to comunicate and over the years I have made good friends all over the world. I highly recommend it! If you'd be interested in jumpin in for some fun I would pm you the Vent info.
