Game for new computer

By lopdog

  1. Hi!

    I´m getting a new notebook soon, with the following specs:

    Core 2 Duo T7700 2.4 Ghz
    NVidia GeForce 8600M GT 512 MB
    4GB DDR2 667 RAM
    160 GB 7200 rpm HDD

    Can anyone recommend a good game that would run nice on this computer? I know games are a lot about personal taste, but any suggestions? I like car games (like Need For Speed) and FPS (Max Payne, RTCW etc).

    They just came out with a new NFS game called prostreet, I've never played it, but it looks pretty awesome. Also, a good FPS that never let's me down, is Counter Strike

    This depend what type of games you like, For fps games, i would recommend call of duty 4, or crysis at medium setttings.

    For rps i would recommend Hellgate london

    Those are pretty good specs, But i would recommend at least a 500watt power supply, because of the dual core and 8800gt.

    Otherwise, very nice!

    I will definitively get NFS Prostreet, I´ve played and enjoyed almost every NFS release. RPG are great, but it takes a lot of time, something that I don´t have too much of... :(
    I´ll take a look at Call of Duty 4, though.

    If you don't already have it Counter-Strike: Source is awesome.

    On second thoughts, and after taking a closer look on Hellgate London I find that this is one of not very many games with support for DirectX 10. Is that right? Other great games with DirectX10 support?

    Strange... I had a dream about Battlefield 2142 last night, and I've never played it.

    Yeah, it's pretty good, but I'd prefer Call of Duty 4 over it- its SP campaign is amazing and MP is great.
