    Well, simply put, we have a lot of computer geeks and gamers here, as we've already addressed in our previous thread. Rather than completely hijacking the thread, I figured I'd start a new thread...

    Simply put, with your beastly machine, what do you play?

    I'm currently playing the following:

    CoD4
    Left for Dead
    World of Warcraft. ()
    FarCry 2
    Assassin's Creed

    Various other steam games.

    Everything of course at 1920x1200, on a 24" widescreen.

    World of Warcraft for me.

    Occasionally I'll play COD4, Diablo/Diablo II, DOOM3, ...

    I'm waiting for Diablo III to come out next year.

    Still running a P4 3.0 but the 3GB RAM/XFX 8800 GTS/and 24" LCD makes most games run ok.

    Currently on Elune. Alliance: 80 Human Pally, 80 Draenei Hunter, 75 Human Lock, 70 Draenei DK (and way too many alts in the 1-40 range). I'm an oddity, I don't raid and I no longer PvP. I basically level a character and either delete or shelve it.

    I only play one or two nights a week now.

    Can you tell I'm unemployed??

    I can't wait for COD: Modern Warfare 2 to come out in a few months. Rage, and a few others look awesome too...

    I don't do any PC gaming, but I've got a 360 and will occasionally play on my PS3. Currently playing CoD:WaW and TF2, and impatiently counting the days until Modern Warfare 2 comes out. Speaking of CoD, am I the only one who liked 5 more than 4?

    I did like 5 for a while better than 4... maybe I still do, not really sure. WaW has so many bugs and unfriendly features.

    Like I'm one of the few million people who have the server refresh error. Where in order to be able to connect to servers online, you have to refresh the server list, completely exit the game, go back into the game, and then you can connect to servers. If you don't follow this process then get you "Server Authentication Error" all the friggin time. This happens on both my laptop and my desktop. I have the latest copy and its through Steam so its constantly updated.

    Additionally, the little stupid bugs drive me nuts in that game. Sometimes when you name all your classes the game just randomly decides to delete them. The server filters are horrid and buggy. Just a poorly designed game overall.. but still fun to play.

    I now feel insignificant in my playing of CIV: IV Beyond the Sword and my XBOX 360. I mainly play sports games on the XBOX.

    I also like shooters, but not so much on the CPU. I like them better on the XBOX.

    I'm your exact opposite. I don't really care for sports games, and shooters on consoles with joysticks are terrible..

    Your so much more accurate and controlled with a keyboard and mouse. The gameplays a lot faster too.

    But racing games.. I hook a gamepad (ps2 style controller) to my pc for racing games..

    I play on my Xbox 360 when I have time. I don't play this game as much as I used to, but I have been playing an online game called COUNTER STRIKE for about 10 years. It's a fun combat game.

    What you guys really need is a BIGGER MONITOR.

    I have a Dell Quad Core system hooked up to my Samsung 56" TV and Sony 1100 Watt 5.1 Channel Surround Sound System (using optical cable).

    Too bad I only use it for browsing the Internet and reading OpenCarry!

    Meh.. my 24" is big enough for me.

    Sometimes at LAN parties I use a friends 32" TV.. thats probably as big as I'd ever want my monitor to go. I put it about 4" in front of my face and play RTS's on it.. pretty sweet.

    Hey, I figured I may as well join the party. Haven't done much gaming lately, but when I do I usually play:
    World of Warcraft - Stormrage - lvl 80 Dwarf Paladin, lvl 80 Draenei Death Knight, lvl 80 Human Warlock, numerous alts. I used to be a hardcore raider but got burnt out shortly before Ulduar was released. I haven't had much desire to play since.
    Combat Arms - Recently discovered this one, it's pretty good for a free FPS. It's made by Nexon, the same people who made Maple Story.

    Team Fortress 2 - Classic, 'nuff said. Check out the Dodgeball maps!

    Battlefield Heros - Love it!
    Now for my modest gaming box:



    Specs:
    OS(es): Dual boot between Arch Linux x86_64 and Windows Vista 64
    CPU: Intel Q6600
    Memory: 4GB PC2-8500 DDR2
    GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4870
    Mainboard: Asus P5Q Pro
    HDD: 2x Seagate 1TB 7200RPM SATA Drives
    Case: Cooler Master RC-690 - I've had many, many cases throughout the years (including Cooler Masters), but this is by far the best case I've ever owned. High quality, high value.
    Displays (including my messy desk):
    Primary: Hannspree (Hanns.G) 28" LCD @1920x1200
    Secondary: Westinghouse 19" LCD @1440x900
    My idea of a custom case mod
