    I've skipped the last few years of PC gaming, so I wanted to go back and play any really good games I've missed.

    I've ordered Farcry and Chronicles of Riddick and I've also got COD2, which I really enjoyed.

    So what would you recomend I buy?

    System is Athlon 4400 @ 2.4, 2 gigs ram and a 1900xt.

    Call of Duty (original game oty)
    It's a lot different to COD2 and still has some DX9 implimented (Has dynamic lights which unless you have a beast of a machine with COD2, you don't as the DX9 mode on it is pretty flawed).

    Dawn of War for an RTS( a la C&C but warhammer, amazing fun :D)

    I've just got into the hitman series. Open-ended missions make for a good romp :p :D

    Thanks guys!

    I've now got a few games on their way to me:

    Call of Duty & United Offensive Expansion Pack
    FarCry (already downloaded the 64bit textures!)
    Chronicles Of Riddick - Escape Butcher Bay

    Should keep me busy for a while!
