Rome: Total War is quite more difficult compared to earlier strategy titles such as Command & Conquer, but it's still the best strategy game currently on the market, and if you're looking for a game to show off the power of your new PC, Rome is more than up to the job.

You'll gasp in amazement at the size of some of the battles you get to fight.

Rome Total War is one of the best games ever. I've never played it online but the single player will last you years.

Haha.

Despite how much I hate half the people who play this game, it is one of those games that will never change and whenever you load it up you know you are going to have fun.

You've got 2GB of memory then....

Yeah the system will run todays games pretty well.

Personally, I've just started playing Half Life 2 and I'd highly reccomend it.

Depends what games you enjoy really.
World of Warcraft is an addictive, genre-busting MMORPG that even people who hate that sort of thing (me) have played for months without wanting to stop. Not hugely graphically intensive, but immersive.
Battlefield 2 for shooty wargames stuff, and if you're rubbish at hitting bunny-hopping madmen, go support class like Medic or Engineer.

Does that a sound pretty good spec?

Believe it or not i did have a 33mhz pc!!! went up to a 350 mhz but then finances restricted updating! always have had a works laptop but obviously can;t load up games and play online with that!
