I ordered a new PC:
3.0ghz C2D, 4gb ram, 640mb GTS

That said, I'm interested some gaming...I came here looking for varied suggestions since 5 years of game releases can include a lot.

I will play Ceasar IV for sure, but I'm open to anything from puzzle, strategy, trippy, to FPS.

Hope you guys can help.

The Witcher
Fallout 3
Battlefield 2 (if you want to try some large-scale multiplayer)
The Dawn of War 40k series
Company of Heroes


Those are just a few suggestions of games that I think would be worthwhile to try in addition to the games mentioned above.

If you love mindless shooting with hordes of enemies, how about the Serious Sam series. They've had Serious Sam The First Encounter, The Second Encounter, and Serious Sam 2, I love all 3 of them

Get Orange Box first and foremost.

After that:

Civilization 4
CoD 4
Dawn of War 40k
Bioshock
Oblivion and Expansions (Knights of the Nine, Shivering Isles)

yeah, orange box is a great place to start for sure.... Oblivion is awesome also if you like RPG types... the mods for oblivion make the game incredibly versatile and pretty much endless... Bioshock is good also and I think can be had for like $5 on steam still.. maybe. anyways, welcome back to the black hole of gaming! :)

edit: oh yeah, thanks poster below, FEAR is off the hook.. very good!
